2017-2018 String Orchestra Auditions
Auditions must be received by Wed., May 24th

Students are required to submit their auditions to Mr. Wagner via email: bwagner@ojaiusd.org. Be sure to follow these directions to complete your audition.
  1. Before you practice, look over the key signatures, bowings and dynamics.
  2. Record each excerpt (scales and exercises) separately. Be sure to state your name and instrument on the recording before you play.
  3. Use a metronome that corresponds to the correct marking for each excerpt. Be sure it is audible on the recording.
  4. Check over your recording before sending to be sure it is what you want to send.
  5. If you are interested in playing in a chamber ensemble (small group) record part I and part II it their entirely.

Remember, your ability to follow directions is very important. It shows that you take this seriously and you took the time to practice.
