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.
