How to prepare for the clinics

  • Eat well, exercise, and get your rest.
  • Constantly be improving!


It is encouraged that music be memorized for the clinics, but all materials in the packets must be memorized for the audition. Music from the packets will be called during individual auditions (this includes Pregame, and the Series). There will also be a sight-reading excerpt.
