Placement Auditions
for Popular Music Ensembles (rock and pop bands)

Tuesday, September 6, 6-9pm
with the Faculty Band: Taylor Upton, Ed Domer, Melissa Elliott and Joe Rudd.

The ensemble program at TMS is growing, and we are excited to double the number of bands we are offering this fall! Students wishing to play in a band must participate in a placement audition. Band instructors Taylor Upton, Ed Domer, Melissa Elliott and Joe Rudd will place students into ensembles, matching band members by skill level and musical interests. Each student will register for a 30-minute audition time slot and prepare specific music according to their instrument - see below. To participate in an ensemble, students must demonstrate a good attitude and a willingness to put in the work, be a team player and have fun!

Popular Music Ensembles meet Tuesdays, 6-7:30p and 7:30-9p. For more information, click here. For students wishing to join the program after September 6, the process involves auditing a band rehearsal and auditioning for our teaching faculty according to their schedule. Please email us with your interest!

Band assignments will be announced by Friday, September 9.
