WELCOME TO OUR REGISTRATION PAGE
Auditions for RPT Percussion are designed to be a low-stress and highly enjoyable experience. The instructional staff will observe your playing and marching abilities and how well you fit in with the rest of the line in terms of your areas of achievement and your areas of opportunity. To prepare for your audition, please download your section’s technique packet and audition requirements. Understand, we WILL find you a place within the ensemble, WE DO NOT CUT !! We will always do our best to find a place within the ensemble that best fits your abilities for achievement and that is in the best interest of the overall ensemble. It is possible,however, it may not be your first choice.
Your audition results will be based on several factors:
- Performance- Your abilities on your instrument and your marching /movement ability are significant factors in your achievement of your goal of membership on our team. Perhaps even more important, however, is your development and progress over a period of time. Our instructional team wants you to be motivated to work hard to fulfill your potential and master your craft.
- Ability to Honor Financial Commitments- We need to agree on an action plan which will enable you to honor your commitment and pay your fees in full by the designated deadlines.
- Attendance- We expect you to attend all of our rehearsals and performances. We do realize there are occasionally unavoidable conflicts. If you know you have a conflict with one of our rehearsal or audition weekends, it is your responsibility to tell your caption head about it as soon as you know. After many years and hundreds of members, we know what to expect and have a lot of experience solving challenges before they become major issues. (School based mandatory functions take priority)
- Attitude- A positive approach to life and to our journey together as a percussion ensemble is very important to everyone here at the RPT Percussion. When everyone is willing to work as a team, we can achieve tremendous things. Our philosophy is to work smart with a solid game plan to be the best we can be, while having a great time together along the way, sharing our love of what we do with each other and with the world. We want to bring together people of character who will work hard to share these attributes and who understand and share this philosophy.
