Join us for this one-week, immersive saxophone intensive led by U-M School of Music, Theatre & Dance's renowned saxophone faculty, Timothy McAllister.
Selected participants will have daily warm-ups, technique class, reed class, listening/history sessions, and chamber/ensemble music time. Special attention will be given to preparation for college auditions and competitions. Recital performances complete this energized program of study.
The application consists of three parts. (Applications are not complete until the application fee has been received.)
Upload a 5-8 minute long recorded audition of one or more pieces, with or without accompaniment (for example, a piece performed at Solo and Ensemble Festival, an etude, or an excerpt from something being played at school). The selection(s) should demonstrate both technical and lyrical skills.
(Optional) You may have one of your current music teachers (school teacher or private teacher) assess your work in a letter of recommendation. In addition to your musical abilities, the letter may discuss your personal characteristics such as initiative, dependability, and your commitment to increasing your musical skills. To invite a recommender, submit your recommender's email address, when prompted, on the audition upload link. Once you submit your audition (by selecting Final Submit), the recommender will receive a notification and link to use for sending your confidential recommendation. E-mailed submissions will not be accepted.
Applications are currently being accepted and notification will be given on a rolling basis.
Decisions will not be given by phone.
