I recently helped my long time student prep for her Central District Band Audition. She came to her lesson with the audition piece only three weeks before the audition date. Yikes! We buckled down and really hammered it out. It was fun to help her work through it and sharpen it up. All her hard work really paid off. WIth a score of 50 out of 55, she was selected as 3rd chair for the Massachusetts Central District Band! Congrats Anna! Way to go, you deserve it! Have a blast at the concert!
