In three weeks, we will be auditioning for spring semester band placements. The materials have been available since August and announced in class continually. Students play major scales, a prepared selection (GMEA All State lyric etude), and do a short sight-reading. Please remember that the auditions also count as a grade. It represents 20% of the overall grade for band. Auditions will take place during class, so no one has to commit any after school time. Make sure that your student is preparing the materials! THese auditions will split the bands into three ability-based groups for spring semester.
