If you are interested in becoming a member of The Rowan University Trumpet Studio we want to hear from you.

To register for an audition go HERE.  If you would like to take a free lesson either in preparation for your audition or as a way to help make your college decision, just contact me HERE (or send an email to my Rowan account) and we’ll sit down and work on trumpet playing and music!

On your audition day, in addition to your performance audition, there is a welcome session as well as ‘break-out’ session for each area (winds, brass, and percussion; strings; voice; and Music Industry) plus a Piano Placement Exam.  You will also need to take Theory, Aural Skills Placement Exams online (a link will be provided to you once you have been accepted into the program).

Audition Requirements for Trumpet can be found HERE. Just scroll down for the information.  Basically we need to hear a two-octave concert Bb scale (single-tongued), a chromatic scale (low F# to High C and back down slurred),  and then something fast, and something slow.  If you have questions contact me, I am glad to help with whatever you may need.
