About the Audition/Interview
Auditions/interviews will be held on Sunday 4th February 2018 at Moreland City Band Hall.
Applicants must prepare and perform 2 pieces of their own choice, preferably by memory.
These can be of any style; just play something you like!
There will also be a short interview in which we ask you about your musical history and test basic musical skills including:
repeating clapped or sung phrases
reading chords (for chordal instruments) and melodies
- knowledge of basic chords/scales
