Welcome to the Guitar Auditions page!
Below are the prepared music required for consideration in the Guitar II and Patriot Guitar Ensemble classes for Fall 2021.
Within each packet of materials, there are requirements including a technique section (chords and scales), etudes, prepped classical material and a free submission of your choosing (read the description on page 2 of the packet for more information).
If you audition for Patriot Guitar and do not make it in, you are still considered for Guitar 2 and Guitar 1. If you audition for Guitar 2 and do not make it in, you will still be able to register for Guitar 1.
