When auditioning, you should choose two contrasting pieces that represent your playing at its best. Audition materials for the woodwind instruments typically include etudes or solo literature, such as sonatas, concertos and solos. Examples may include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Etudes by Anderson, Berbeguier, Donjon, Schmitz, Karg-Elert and Voxman (“Selected Studies”)
- Concerto movements by Mozart, Chaminade, Nielsen and Ibert
- Sonata or solo movements by Messaien, Poulenc, Prokofiev, Telemann and Bach
Be prepared to perform any scales upon request.
You will be asked to sight-read a passage as part of your audition. You will be given a few moments to look it over and then we will ask you to perform it.
If you have any questions, contact Tabatha Easley, assistant professor of flute.
