*Years experience is not a requirement or a prerequisite for any group.  Group placement is based on playing ability and instrumentation needs for the group.  Not on actual year's playing experience.  This is just for your reference.  Students learn music at different rates.  Auditions are meant more as a placement tool.  Students will be placed in a group that our staff feels most appropriate for that student.

Placement in ensembles is determined by audition.
