Seating Hearings for 2018-2019

Only incoming students will audition for placement. If you are returning to the LCCB, I will place you without an audition. Please contact me if you would like me to consider moving your placement.

For incoming students: please follow the procedure below. Auditions will be held on the Sunday before the first day of classes (August 27, 2016) beginning at 3:00 p.m.

The procedure and requirements for auditions are as follows:

Requirements:

  • A short solo piece which demonstrates technique and musicianship. This can be solo classical repertoire (of any level), but should not be a pop song.
  • Sight Reading

Schedule:

The auditions will be held on Monday, September 3, 2018 beginning at 3:00 p.m. in Williams Center for the Arts room 234. It is important that you arrange your schedule to accommodate these times. Schedule your audition as early as possible.

Procedure:

  1. Complete the Audition Request Form. Complete a form for each instrument you are interested in playing.
  2. I will schedule your time and post it in the audition schedule. Check here frequently.
  3. Arrive early enough to warm up comfortably before your audition.
  4. Preparation is very important. Please do not sight read your entire audition.

If you need to postpone your audition, contact me as soon as possible.
