Interested students must be capable of working independently and accepting responsibility. All participants will be expected to learn their music thoroughly before the first rehearsal.
The recommended minimum NYSSMA levels are as follows:
Level 4: piccolo, flute, oboe, alto saxophone, snare drum
Level 3: clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoon, tenor and baritone saxophone, trumpet, French horn, trombone, euphonium, tuba, percussion (keyboard and timpani)
You may also submit a digital recording of the student’s best playing as a substitute for NYSSMA scores or equivalent repertoire.
To be considered for first chair placement in a section, please submit a digital recording indicative of the student’s current playing level (maximum length of 10 minutes).
