Every one of you should be auditioning for the A Group (the high school group), even if you don't think you will be moving into the group this year. The audition is a good experience in a low-pressure environment, and will give you good practice for when you are ready to audition in future. Tina and I will probably be running the auditions together, and we are all on your side -- we WANT you to succeed, so try not to be too nervous.
For the audition, you will be to be prepared to do:
1 Picking piece (must be fully memorized)
1 Singing/Strumming piece (again must be memorized, can be anything, ex: Do Re Mi)
1 Clapping section from the Blue Book (we will choose which section so practice all Gold sections on your pin sheet)
1 Sight-reading picking section from Blue Book (we will choose the lines/sections, so practice the Gold sections on your pin sheet)
**If you have any questions about this please ask me! If you want to do a certain song but don't know if it's appropriate for the audition, feel free to ask me at our next rehearsal.
