    • 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. 
  • 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 the success in our ensembles.

      • Brass: French horns, Baritones and Tubas
      • Trumpet opportunities in the upper level bands are competitive since we have an abundance of students that play this instrument.
    • Ultimately, a well instrumented band is something that is positive FOR EVERYONE INVOLVED.
