Audition Materials

Audition music for all instruments is located in the pdf. Please open the file and scroll down to find and print the music for your instrument. Be careful to print only the pages necessary for your instrument.

The Audition consists of:

  • Prepared excerpts
  • Sight Reading
  • Percussionists note: There are two separate sets of audition material— one for snare drum and one for mallets (vibes and bells).
  • Audition Materials Spring 2015



  • Practice the audition material slowly with a metronome.
  • Don’t cram— It’s better to play through your material more frequently for shorter amounts of time as opposed to a long, “last-minute” practice session.
  • Plan to arrive at least 20 minutes prior to your audition in order to assemble your instrument and warm-up.
  • Please arrive prepared to play your best.
