Band Placement

During the registration day, students will play a “short” audition to help the staff place them in a band based on their ability. This will ensure the student receives the best instruction possible! The student can prepare one of the All-State Etudes, a short solo, or anything showing their playing ability. Students will also be asked to play some of their scales. Percussion will be auditioning on Snare, Mallet, and Tympani. Bring all your sticks and mallets.
