Audition Preparation Tips
Don't wait until the last minute to practice; you have over six months to prepare, so take your time and prepare thoroughly!  Don't forget to work on all those scales too.  Employ the use of a Private Lesson teacher to help you prepare. Use a metronome! 

Other Info
It's a blind audition but you just might play better if you dress nicely.

Consider bringing a few dollars for refreshments.

The duration of time spent onsite at the audition is entirely dependent on when you audition. You could be done by 9:05am, or by 2:00pm. Be flexible. Plan for transportation. Some instrument rooms may employ a prelims/finals format. 

Honor Band Clinic/Concert
January 12-13, 2018 at Bartlesville HS, for those students who are selected by audition to perform in the NBDA All-District Honor Band. Please note that all students who make the honor band will participate in this clinic; each participating student's CHARMS account will be billed $10 for the Friday evening dinner meal.
