Tips for Auditioning Your Students

  • Print the music for Chorus(pg 8-9) and/or Orff(pg 8-9).
  • Make sure you are using the 2018-2019 Packet
  • Practice the music with the students.
  • Plan to have the auditions recorded a few days before the deadline to give you time to upload without stress.
  • Check to be sure the recording is audible/visible.
  • Make sure we can't see the teacher's face, student's face, or any logos or other school-identifying things in the video.
