Drum Major Auditions


Drum Major Auditions for the 2014 Fall Marching Season will take place on Friday, May 30 at 3:30pm in the NBHS Band Room.  Candidates must have completed one year of Marching Band and be in good academic standing in order to apply. Applications must be completed and turned in by Friday, May 23 in order to be eligible for the auditions.  Anyone accepting the position must make a commitment to attend every rehearsal and performance for the 2014-2015 school year and must place band as a priority over other school activities.


Audition format will be as follows:

    I. Conduct the National Anthem

    II. Informal Interview

    III. Marching Exhibition

    IV. Prepared Conducting


Auditions will be performed for a committee of 3-6 people chosen by Mr. Drew with various backgrounds qualifying them to take part.  The committee will select 1-3 drum major(s) as deemed appropriate with the goal being to select the strongest team of drum majors to lead the band musically and personally. Results will be announced upon conclusion of the auditions.


The Auditions should last about three to four hours.  If there are more than five candidates, the pool will be narrowed to five students after round one (Conducting the National Anthem).


Help sessions will be held for all interested students on Thursday afternoons: May 15, 22, and 29 at 2:30pm in the NBHS Band Room.


Anyone with questions should contact Mr. Drew
