HS Audition for Symphonic and Jazz Bands

March 1st, 2017 No comments

Auditions for HS Symphonic Band and HS Jazz Band will be after school on March 13 and 14. Please sign up for a time on the Fine Arts Office board next to the AMR.

 

Symphonic Band:

As many of the 12 major scales you can play in 2 minutes. These are on page 44 of the blue book.

A slow and a fast section of any music you choose. (AMIS audition music, a solo or band music will be fine)

A short sight reading – you will have 60 seconds to practice the piece silently before you play.

 

Jazz Band:

The 12 blues scales in 2 minutes

Improvise a solo on a Bb blues. (trumpet, tenor sax – use your C blues scale, alto and bari sax – use your G blues scale)
