District Auditions Updates

State Auditions Chair Anna Hamilton, in collaboration with District I Chair Becky Hughes and District VII Chair Adrian Sanchez, have developed documents that demonstrate the required Theory/Technique elements for each of the twelve piano levels in the District Auditions. We trust this will provide clarification for teachers, students, and judges. As you enter students this year, be sure to thank these chairpersons for their support of these events for your students.

Please note that all member renewals must be made by December 31, 2017 in order to register for the spring auditions. This policy allows for adequate processing time for renewals.
