Brass Repertoire

Suggested Repertoire - Brass

Prospective students should choose contrasting selections in order to demonstrate musicianship, tone quality, technical ability, and range. This can be accomplished through two separate movements of the same or different compositions. It is possible that one movement will demonstrate all that is needed.

Please consider the following compositions as a general guide. Works similar in style to those listed below may be substituted. Select pieces with which you are comfortable and that portray your playing at its very best! Etudes can also be considered.

Students will be expected to demonstrate prowess on all major scales, while some knowledge of minor scales will be viewed upon favorably. In addition, sight-reading may be expected at the discretion of the audition committee.
