A note about percussion auditions:
All percussionists are placed in the same class in the fall, so auditions for percussionists are to determine their placement in the Fall drumline. We will have several “Drumline Audition Clinics" where students will receive music, info, and instruction on how to prepare for the individual audition on 5/16. Students will also be evaluated in a group playing environment. We will have clinicians in to work with the students and separated into instrument groupings based on their specialties (I.e. Snare, Quad, Bass, and Front Ensemble). Students may feel free to come and go between instrument sections based on what they want to learn and try out for. These clinics are not required and will not affect the students' grades however, the better attendance a student has, the more prepared they will likely be for their drumline audition. Best of luck!
All clinics are from 4:30-7:00 p.m.
