LBJ Band Audition Information
Welcome to the LBJ Band Program! We are excited to have you join our award winning organization. To place you into the band class in which you will be the most successful and have the best time, we ask that you perform a live audition for an LBJ band director. Auditions will be heard in May. Check the band calendar for dates.
- Major Scales Please prepare all 12 major scales for your audition.
- Prepared Etudes Perform the etude ‘cuts’ listed below. We encourage all students to perform each cut at whatever tempo allows you to best demonstrate your skills as a musician.
- Optional Solo You are strongly encouraged to play an advanced solo excerpt of your choosing. This should showcase your abilities as a musician in order to help us get a full understanding of where you are in your musical development.
- Sight-Reading Each student may be asked to sight read a short etude.
