Wind and Brass - Prepare a solo work for your instrument representative of your current ability. A piece from the state-solo list or a sufficiently technical étude are appropriate choices. Accompanists are welcome, but are not necessary or expected. A major scale across the whole range of your instrument may also be asked.

Percussion - Prepare two brief solo works or études, one for snare drum and one for keyboard percussion. Demonstration of major scales may also be asked. Accompanists are welcome, but are not necessary or expected. Instruments will be provided for you. Jazz percussionists should also be prepared to demonstrate a variety of styles on drum-set.

Vocalists - Prepare two songs in contrasting styles. Classical repertoire is preferred, but one of your selections may be from the folk or Broadway canon. A brief sight-singing excerpt will also be asked. Accompanists can be provided.

Strings - Prepare two contrasting pieces or movements no longer than 10 minutes combined. Accompanists are welcome, but are not necessary or expected. A major scale across the whole range of your instrument may also be asked.
