Alabama All State Audition Boot Camp for Clarinetists

Happy November! The air’s getting colder as marching band comes to a close for another season, which can only mean one thing…

All State auditions are just around the corner!

That’s right, it’s time to dust off those scales and polish those etudes, because auditions will be here before you know it! Lucky for you, I’ve created a free 8-week boot camp for clarinetists of all ages to prepare for their All State audition, whether it’s your first time or you have a few auditions under your belt.

I’m a veteran of the Alabama All State Band system, having made 1st chair in the Red Band multiple times, and I also received 1st prize in the Alabama All State Solo Competition. Now, I perform professionally and teach the next generation of clarinetists how to prepare for All State auditions and beyond. My students regularly make top chairs in every All State band and receive Superior ratings at the State Solo Festival.

I’ve designed these boot camps (both for middle school and high school All State clarinet auditions) to help clarinetists in Alabama prepare for auditions. If you begin in mid to late November, you’ll finish in plenty of time for the audition in late January.

Here’s the FREE 8-week boot camp schedule and breakdown:

I hope this boot camp helps you or your students prepare for your All State audition! If you’d like one-on-one coaching and additional All State prep, I also teach Skype clarinet lessons!

Good luck and happy practicing!
