1.STUDENT SIGN-IN PROCESS – This will be done at the audition room. Students need to be at the room per their sign-in time on the room assignment list. Students should write down audition letter and keep it with them at all times.

2.“IN THE ROOM” PROCEDURE – The monitor will seat the students in audition order. The students will have a minute to warm up at the beginning of the audition, then another 30 seconds of warm up after every 5th player. The monitor will announce to the judges “THE NEXT PLAYER TO PLAY IS LETTER ….” The player shares equal responsibility in making sure that the correct letter is called out. IF THE WRONG LETTER IS CALLED OUT the student MUST GET THE ATTENTION of the monitor to make corrections BEFORE he or she begins. The student may play the first note of the scale or etude as a warm up. If for any reason during the audition the student has a problem or question they may motion to the monitor to come to them then WHISPER their concerns.

3.There will be three rounds. The first round will consist of two major scales, chromatic scale and etude 1; the second round will consist of etude 2; the last round will consist of etude 3.
