Wind Ensemble Auditions

2019-2020 Wind Ensemble Audition Information

Wind Ensemble Auditions take place after school on May 9th and May 10th

1. Prepared Etude:

2. Scales:

  • Two-octave major scales in the circle of 5ths from memory.
  • Full range chromatic scale from memory (your lowest to highest up and down).
  • 8th grade students auditioning music play all of their benchmark scales.

3. Sight-Reading:


  • Do your best. You may not be able to play everything at the recommended tempos, but still learn the pieces.
  • Mr. Dudzinski wants to see what you can do with music of this difficulty. Even if you cannot play everything, he can get a sense of how hard you are willing to work and what you are capable of doing.
  • Ask for help if you need it. Ask your band teacher, private lesson teacher or someone who has auditioned for All-State.
