Scholarship Auditions

2014 AMB Scholarship Information

If you have been admitted to USU for the fall, we are currently accepting video submissions for scholarships. Scholarships are available for all instruments, but special consideration will be given to tubas, trombones, and trumpets.

Please email a private Youtube video link (or Vimeo, etc.) to joseph.falvey@usu.edu or share your video through file sharing services like Dropbox. You may also schedule a live Skype audition with Dr. Falvey.

The scholarship amounts will be based on the quality of your audition as well as the total number of auditionees. Here are the possibilities:

  1. $100-$200 - marching band only
  2. up to $600 - requires participation in marching band and an additional ensemble in the fall and spring

 

Please fill out an interest form and let us know in the comments if you are auditioning for option 1, option 2, or both.

WW and Brass:

  • 1 scale demonstrating your full range on your instrument
  • 2 contrasting etudes or excerpts from solos, etc.
  • Does not need to be more than 3 minutes.

 

Drumline:

  • Rudiments from each category - rolls, paradiddles, flams, and drags
  • optional - a solo or cadence

 

All color guard members (not already receiving a music scholarship) will receive a $100 scholarship (no audition necessary).

The scholarship deadline is July 11th and offers will be made starting on June 16th. If you are leaving on an LDS mission, we will hold your scholarship until you return (if you qualify for a scholarship).
