Note: Students auditioning will perform for one of 3 types of committees.

ALL students auditioning will perform scales first followed by the etude and then sight-reading.

2  Tone - This is for beauty, control, knowledge of characteristic sound, and ability to use this knowledge to the maximum effectiveness.

String Bass Players: Students will be selected through the All-State Orchestra auditions for the Region and All-State Bands. Click here to go to the Orchestra site for more information on registrations, scales requirements, and a copy of the solo.

              1 - Battery/Mallets or  2 - Timpani

6 Technical Proficiency - Percussionists will play pre-selected rudiments AND major scales. Students must play them in the order specified on the notecards.

7 Overall Technique for percussion will be the equivalent of the tone score for wind instruments.  The technique score will be given at the end of the audition and will reflect the student's overall technique during the audition.  Technique will reflect, but not necessarily require, appropriate stick control, rudiment playing speed, timpani rolls, keyboard percussion rolls, etc.
