The Audition Process

Grace Notes (grades 2 & 3) - placement audition only

Solo: Your child will be asked to sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" as a solo for our 3 directors. The solo enables the directors to hear your child "match pitch" (sing in tune). The directors make the process as stress free as possible.
