Middle School Fall Preliminary Placement information:
For new and existing middle school students, prepare a solo piece of your choice along with one major scale and one melodic minor scale (two octaves with 0-3 sharps or flats) plus a two-octave g chromatic scale. Three octave scales are optional. You will also be asked to sight read.
Preparing these materials during the summer will put you in great shape to begin DSAO!
This year all students except Seniors will be required to play juries. The jury will consist of two scales (same requirements as DSA auditions-see website under:apply) and one movement of a major solo piece. Juries will begin after the final concerts in May.
