Pit Auditions

Post by Impulse Perc » Sun Jan 12, 2003 7:30 am

The Impulse Drum and Bugle Corps will be holding auditions for the front ensemble on Sunday, January 26 at Cerritos College from 9-6.

Our instrumentation will be 3 Marimbas, 2 Xylos, 2 Vibes, Bells, Timpani, and Aux. Percussion.

Those auditioning for mallets should be familiar with 2 and 4 mallet technique, have an understanding of the 40 essential rudiments, and elements of pitch and tempo control.

Timpanists should have the ability to change pitch, sight-sing pitch, and familiarity with either french or german technique.

Those interested in the position of Aux. percussion should have a solid understanding of the 40 essential rudiments.

Those auditioning will be evaluated individually as well as in an ensemble setting. A prepared solo is preferred but not necessary.
