UCF Music to Host All-State Preparation Clinic for Middle, High Schoolers

photoThe University of Central Florida will offer a day-long All-State Preparation Clinic to middle and high school students on Saturday, August 27. The clinic is free, but advance registration is required.

UCF Music faculty and guest instrumentalists will offer clinics on the Florida Bandmasters Association and Florida Orchestra Association’s All-State Band and Orchestra audition requirements for 7-8, 9-10, and 11-12 grades, as well as Jazz Band audition requirements for 9-12 grades.

The day includes interaction with UCF music faculty, who provide coaching on the Florida All-State audition etudes and strategies on how to successfully audition. Emphasis will be placed on all-state exercise preparation, tone production, technique development, scales, sight-reading strategies and audition readiness.

“Every student who attends should benefit, whether they ultimately make an all-state ensemble or not,” said Michael Wilkinson, assistant professor of trombone. “Learning to be a musician is a journey, and one year’s clinic may be the part of the journey that gives a student the inspiration to practice a little more, or may give them that ‘gem’ of musical knowledge that helps to take them a level higher in their musical journey. For some, attending the clinics may just give them that boost that helps in their all-state audition, and gets them into one of the ensembles.”

For students who are considering attending UCF to study music, the day showcases each of the wind, percussion and string professors’ teaching and musical thought processes, and provides emergent music students an opportunity to experience what UCF music is like for a day. The annual event is in its 11th year and approximately 400 students are expected to attend.
