Missouri high school band students auditioning for all-district and all-state band now have a practice resource through Missouri State’s music department.
Videos help students learn audition materials
The department has released a free Guided Practice Sessions (GPS) video series that cover the required scales and etudes from the band audition materials for 2015.
Each scale is in four different tempos from slow to fast, both tongued and slurred. The etudes are divided into smaller sections and, as with the scales, are presented in four different tempos from slow to fast.

The videos can be found in the GPS playlist of the music department’s YouTube channel.
