All-State Preparation Clinic

All-State Preparation Clinic

Saturday, August 25, 2018

A clinic on how to prepare for the Florida Music Educators’ Association 2018-19 All-State Band, Orchestra, and Jazz Band auditions


Campus Location: Visual Arts Building (will do check-in and on-site registration)

  • The Instrumental Clinics involve UCF applied music faculty and guest instrumentalist providing insight on FBA and FOA All-State Band and Orchestra audition requirements for 7-8, 9-10, and 11-12 grades as well as FBA Jazz Band auditions requirements for 9-12 grades. Emphasis will be placed on All-State exercise preparation, tone production, technique development, scales, sight-reading strategies, and audition readiness. Students should bring instruments, All-State music, and be prepared to play. UCF will provide all the percussion instruments, but students should bring their own sticks and mallets.

  • The Director Session offer an opportunity for band and orchestra directors to connect directly with UCF’s ensemble faculty to share information about exciting initiatives and opportunities through our programs designed to benefit the school music programs of Central Florida, and also to collaborate and discuss how the UCF School of Performing Arts can do even more to support area music directors and their students.

  • The Parent Session will provide valuable information and perspectives as their students move toward making decisions regarding their post-secondary experiences. Frequently asked questions, advice, and recommendations regarding exploring and preparing for opportunities in college, regardless of major, as well as time for parents to ask additional questions of their own. There will also be an opportunity to learn more about the Youth Band of Orlando.
