MacPhail does not have tutorials for these etudes in 2018

 

 

Woodwind, Brass, & Percussion All State Etudes by Timothy Mahr, Set 1 & Set 2.

At the time these etudes were implemented, MMEA required the student to audition with the complete etude (three sections). Since that time, MMEA has reduced the etude by omitting the final section of each etude. We have not edited out that final section of these tutorials. We hope you will notice that the faculty performance is longer than the one that you will have to record for the Minnesota All-State Audition!

Note from Timothy Mahr, Composer

“It was my intent to have these etudes cover many technical issues in the most musical manner possible. Having conducted over twenty all state bands across this nation, I know what kind of performance level I hope to encounter with an all state ensemble, and I composed these etudes with that standard in mind. If a student works hard to prepare the MMEA All State Audition Etude, his or her level of musicianship should be such that the audition should be noteworthy. It is my hope that the challenges contained in the etudes will inspire diligent work and, in fact, ready the student for a memorable all state experience. Good luck!”
