• Audition Requirements.


    Beginning students need no prior knowledge. The audition will be a class lesson to determine a student’s musical aptitude. This will involve all students and parents are welcome to attend and observe.


    Students wishing to enter an upper level orchestra should prepare: 

    • A short solo (approx. 1 ½ - 2 minutes)
    • 1 or 2 scales of their choice. Advanced students should play scales in 2-3 octaves.
    • Students might be asked to demonstrate their sight reading ability. This will be equivalent to a UIL level 1 (easiest) sight reading test. This will not be used to determine acceptance into the program, but simply to identify a student's ability. 



    • Prepared Piece = 100 points
    • Posture/Technique = 100 points
    • Scales = 50 points
    • Musicality = 50 points

    Total = 300 points
