Fall Auditions

Etudes have been uploaded to Charms for the fall auditions. The tentative date for auditions is November 18.

Audition requirements:
Scale Test: All students will demonstrate as many scales as they can play from memory in 2 minutes; more points will be rewarded for multiple octaves.

Chromatic Scale: All students will demonstrate their facility of range by performing the Chromatic range that is required by the Georgia Music Educators Association (posted on the band room wall)

Etude: All students will demonstrate artistic ability through maturity of tone, interpretation of style, articulation, intonation, tempo, and expression in a prepared etude.

Sight-Reading: All students will sight-read an etude after studying for only 30 seconds. They will demonstrate their understanding of all basic music fundamentals - tone, technique, articulation, tempo, rhythm, intonation, and phrasing.
