The FAU Marching Owls audition in the late-Spring and Summer for drumline, colorguard, and majorettes. However, we do not hold auditions for experienced woodwind and brass players. Instead, the woodwinds and brass determine part assignments on the first day of Pre-Season Training.
The material provided here is a collection of warm-ups. You will be responsible for all the material at the audition. Since there is a limited amount of space you may not make the line on your preferred instrument, but there may be opportunities to make the line on another instrument. Please read through the handbook carefully and prepare yourself accordingly.
Contact Professor Matthew Nichols to setup an audition time. Space in the drumline will begin to fill in April, and additional space may or may not be available as the Fall season approaches.
