Auditions are in January and the Festival (if selected) will be in March.
Important: Please let me know ASAP if your child would like to participate, I will register them and help you located the music that needs to be purchased (No photocopies allowed for auditions)
Please note: This is a solo audition, students will prepare themselves (or prepare with a private teacher) and I will make sure I am available for a few coachings as scheduling permits closer to audition season. This will not happen during their regularly scheduled instrumental lessons as we do not cover solo music during rehearsals and lessons.
- Students must perform one of the pieces from the repertoire list (please request a copy) and be prepared to perform the piece in its entirety.
- All instrumental students will perform a one-octave chromatic scale and one of the major scales as outlined on the audition literature list from memory.
- There will be a sight-reading component to the audition as well.
