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!
Auditionees must attempt all notes & rhythms for all etudes and sight reading, as well as scales (winds), to receive credit on the audition score, and to be eligible to pass on to OkMEA 2nd-Round, if applicable.
