At UD, we encourage each saxophonist to choose which saxophone to play as a primary voice. Because of this, you may audition on the saxophone of your choice. While it is preferable to choose repertoire written for the saxophone that you decide to play, it is acceptable to play alto saxophone repertoire on tenor, baritone, or soprano saxophone.
When choosing repertoire, try to find music that showcases your skills while still challenging you. If you choose music that is extremely easy for you, the audition panel will be left wondering what your real skill level is. On the other hand, if you over-reach and try to play music that is too difficult for your ability level, that does not present you at your best either.
Optional: Students interested in a jazz minor or experienced in jazz may prepare a jazz etude, transcribed solo, or improvise over a tune of their choice. Contact the saxophone instructor, Todd Groves, if you have questions firstname.lastname@example.org.
