Band Placement Auditions

Update for Fall of 2020: Auditions for the 2020-2021 school year are due by August 31st. This year, you will upload your video audition. More details on our Fall Auditions can be found here.

What: When you join CHBA, we will place you in one of our bands according to your skill level. After that, you may advance through our curriculum at your own pace and “move up” as you master the curriculum requirements for each level.

Who: Students who are new to CHBA but who have prior experience on their instrument.

When: Year-round

How to Schedule: Fill out our Online Registration Form and we will schedule your start date and send you audition music to prepare for your first class.

*Remember, there are no auditions for beginning level students! We are prepared to teach you everything you need to know about your instrument and expect you to start out with no previous experience!

Chair-Placement Auditions

What: Students in levels 3-5 are seated in order of skill level as demonstrated in yearly chair placement auditions. These music auditions in Denver are appropriate for students with several years’ experience on their instruments.

Who: Current CHBA members and new advanced-level students who join CHBA at the beginning of the fall term.

When: Annually in August. (New fall audition music becomes available each May.) For exact dates, please see our Calendar.
