2015 MMEA All-State Audition Etudes (Set #1)
Welcome to the MacPhail Center for Music, All-State Audition Video Tutorial Project!
We hope you will enjoy the presentations. Our goal is to present a performance of each of the following All-State etudes along with lesson segments to help you prepare for your All-State audition.
How to use these videos
In addition to viewing the videos on your instrument, we encourage you to view segments from instruments not your own, because you will notice common themes, such as phrasing and rhythm. It’s possible the way one teacher talks about phrasing will really hit home with you, even though it was not about your instrument. You might also notice that some of the etudes are quite similar to each other. Alto Saxophone and Xylophone students note that your etudes are almost identical. You will notice the uniqueness and excitement of each MacPhail teacher!
