Auditions must be scheduled through the band office. Auditions are by appointment only. Prospective students are encouraged to audition as early as possible. A limited number of scholarships are available depending on the needs of the program and playing abililty. Students who are unable to audition in person may send a video audition (see below). The band audition is a tool designed to offer some indication of a musician's instrumental performance proficiency.
Adjudication scores will be based on tone, technique, style, and dynamics on scales and prepared pieces. Sight-Reading scores will be based on rhythm, counting, accuracy of notes, articulation, and style.
