About the Event
Students will learn tips on how to prepare and play the audition materials for the OMEA All-State auditions.
This is NOT a masterclass. Students will not be asked to play in front of the class. Rather, they can set their microphones to 'mute' and try the tips the teacher is demonstrating in the comfort of their own home.
