This guide to the Missouri All-State Band trombone audition is meant for both students and parents. I will walk you through each required étude and every aspect of your technical, musical and mental preparation, and I'll provide insight into what to expect on the day of the audition and in the weeks leading up to it. I take with great pride that I went through the Missouri All-State Band audition process all four years of high school, and I've found that the personal gains I made in the process have continued to benefit me throughout my career. I hope the same will be true for you!
