Winds & Brass

Audition Guidelines

All prospective students desiring to audition in wind or brass instruments are required to perform an audition of two selections that are contrasting in style.

Please prepare about 5-8 minutes of music. We typically ask for two contrasting works which best showcase your abilities. This could be contrasting études that you have played for an All-State competition or movements of a work that you have performed at a state solo/ensemble contest. For specific recommendations, please contact your prospective studio teacher in your area.
