BATTERY:  Due to the amount of material we have to learn each fall, we would like to see how well you have memorized all of the battery material in the audition packet.  Please be able to play all material while marking time and/or marching.  Bass drums, learn any part that is the most comfortable to you.  We’ll only assign parts after the line is set.  2020 Battery Audition Packet

 

FRONT ENSEMBLE:  Learn the material in the packet below on any instrument that is the most comfortable.  We’ll assign instruments after the front ensemble is set.  Please learn each exercise (other than double vertical 5ths) in all 12 major keys.  Front Ensemble Audition Packet

 

PIANO PLAYERS:  We do implement synth(s) into our front ensemble set-up.   We’ll ask that you play the keyboard exercises in the keys prescribed.  We’ll also ask you to play some things for us individually, to assess your abilities as a piano player.  This can be a solo or anything of your choosing that showcases your piano talents.
