Flute Audition Instructions

The Mustang Band primarily marches flutes, with a select few chosen to perform on piccolo. (Piccolo performers are selected by audition during Band Camp.) Therefore, we ask that you please record your performance on flute.

To audition on flute, please submit a video recording of the following:

  1. Chromatic Scale 3 Octaves C to C
  2. Any 2 selections from the Flute Packet


  • At the beginning of your video, state the following information for the camera:
    • Your first and last name
    • The current Date and Time
    • The make and model of the instrument you are using for the audition
    • The name (or description) of the excerpts you are performing
  • Please stand, unless you currently have an injury which prevents you from doing so.
  • Ensure that the Video frame includes your face, hands and instrument throughout the recording.
  • Only edit video BETWEEN excerpts, but not WITHIN excerpts.
