Starting the All-State Process Now

Take a look at your current shining stars in your 3rd and 4th grade music classes. Do you see a spark of drive in a student or a kiddo that just seems to click with everything you sing or play together? Now is the time to start approaching these students and steering them toward the All-State Audition Track.

The vocal audition is the same each year with the exception of the tonal patterns. Practicing the 2018 patterns will be a great start even though they will change in August. There will be quite a few things that are left the same in the Orff Ensemble Audition as well.

You can easily add this repertoire into your lessons between now and the end of the year and get a measure of who might be successful.

Consider training to become an adjudicator. This will help you have a better understanding of the tone profile and desired singing outcomes in the audition rubric.

Visit the FEMEA website today, and get started!
