- Students will be asked to play two scales and two excerpts on the audition day. The two selected scales and two selected audition excerpts will be posted outside the judges room on the day of the audition.
- Violinists will have a separate room for the scales and a separate room for the excerpts. Please make sure to tell your violin students there are at least two rooms. In the event there are many violinists auditioning, there is a possibility of having three audition rooms. In this case, one room will be for the scale audition, one room for the first selected excerpt and the third room for the second selected excerpt.
