OTHERS ITEMS TO CONSIDER

  • PRIVATE LESSONS
    • Personal private lessons with professionals on your instrument is the most efficient and quickest way to continue growth on your instrument. 
    • Instruments are complex and guidance from someone who has vast experience is key to development. 
    • Taking a lesson or two in preparation for this audition and routinely taking weekly/monthly private lessons is vital to continue growth as an instrumentalist and musician. 
    • Check this list of teachers!
  • INSTRUMENT SWITCHES
    • If you are looking to be placed in higher ensembles and instrument switch may offer an opportunity for you. 
    • Just look any athletic team, healthy instrumentation [*a balance of instruments in the band program*] is crucial to keeping positive experiences. 
    • If you are interested in trying something new, having a new challenge here are some instruments we need
      • Woodwinds: clarinets, bass clarinets, oboes, bassoons
      • Brass: French horns, trombones, baritones and tubas
      • Alto saxophone and trumpet opportunities in the upper level bands are competitive since we have an abundance of  students that play these instruments.
    • Ultimately, a well instrumented band is something that is positive FOR EVERYONE INVOLVED.
