The Jordan Warrior Band & Guard is a ‘state of the art’ competitive marching band and explores the latest trends in the competitive marching arts. The marching band provides an outlet for students interested in the realm of design, performance, leadership, social, and competitive opportunities.
All band members must complete a successful audition for placement into all sections of the Warrior Band (winds, color guard, & percussion). Two components are factored into the marching band audition: the concert ensemble music audition in the Spring, and a marching visual demonstration audition following the training camps. Previous history including attendance and academic eligibility will also be considered into the audition. All potential members that audition will be granted membership based on the quality of their performance ability - both musically and visually.
Each student will need to prepare the etude specific to their instrument and the 12 major scales plus the chromatic. We will hear the students play their etude, a scale of their choice, and a scale of our choice. We have selected additional exercises for SOME of the instruments (below in RED) - if your instrument does not have an additional exercise below, then the audition etude and scales is all you will have to play for your audition. **NOTE: only perform the highlighted portions of the additional exercise. Tempo for each exercise is 96 bpm.
