Wind Ensemble Auditions

Wind Instrument Audition Requirements:

  1. Perform Concert F & Ab Major scales (1 octave minimum, 2 octaves preferred)

  2. Perform Chromatic Scale (1 octave minimum, 2 octaves preferred)

  3. Perform a prepared selection of one of the following options:

A. Solo/small ensemble piece- something you know from a contest or other performance.

B. Etude- material from a lesson or method book or NSBA 8th Grade All State Auditions

C. Band/Orchestra- music you are preparing in class

Your selection should be 16-32 measures in length and demonstrate lyrical and technical style, dynamic contrast, and range.

Please note:

This is an “audition”, NOT a playing test. No one will “fail” or not be accepted for participation in high school band. Everyone has a place to play in our band program.
