Drummer Auditions

DRUMMERS!

 

Its important first that you understand that this scholarship is for motivated students who must be interested in being successful as students first and performers second. All Sound Fuzion members must maintain good grades and pass their classes! So, grades are also reviewed as well as your audition before we award a scholarship.

 

We are asking you to prepare the following pieces. You will be judged on your ability to play the pieces with the following criteria:  musical accuracy, timing and feel. That mean's learn the parts as close to the original as possible except where we are asking you to come up with your own parts for #2 below. You also may be asked to play to random click tracks without a backing track or learn something on the fly at the audition! Best of luck to all of you!

 

You may be asked to play all or part of the following. Be prepared to play the following:
