Placement auditions September 2019

There will be an orchestral excerpt list posted here, on the UVIc flute blog, by July. All flute students* will be placed into a large ensemble (either Concert band, Wind symphony or Orchestra) based on results of the placement audition. The auditions will be heard by a committee of faculty members. This audition will take place during the first week of classes (usually the first Thursday, classes begin Wednesday 4 Sept). You will need to sign up for an audition time via a sign up sheet, which will be posted on the large ensemble bulletin board (foot of stairs, lower level Maclaurin b wing).

Every yr I offer all students one lesson in advance (focussed on this audition material); this lesson simply “counts” as one of your first term lessons. This early lesson is optional but highly recommended. Because of time constraints (between first day of classes and the audition), this early lesson will take place between 26-30 August. This also allows you some time to make adjustments to how you are approaching the excerpts. Please contact me well in advance to schedule this “early lesson” as times invariably fill up quickly. 

FYI: lessons will usually be offered through a ‘first-come, first-serve’ sign up sheet process, posted on my studio door.


*with a few exceptions: MA graduate students or some transfer students no longer requiring the credit, if in doubt please consult with me directly…
