Audition Guidelines

A child from the String Project poses backstage with his cello before the concert.

*A key to understanding the markings on scales regarding finger patterns and which position you'll shift to is also available online.

*Please encourage your student(s) to practice slowly with a metronome. Do your best to play the audition material as written. 20 to 30 minutes of practice a day will make all the difference in the world!

Auditions will be held at the beginning of the spring semester.

You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the pdf files. It can be download for free from the Adobe website.
