See the OpusEvent How-To Guide for information on how to submit auditions.

Important reminders for sponsoring teachers:

Sponsoring teacher must be a current MMEA member.

Username is the email address you used to renew/join NAfME. Password is your 9-digit NAfME user id number (add zeros to the beginning to make 9 digits).

MMEA manually updates the member list daily, Monday through Friday. You may need to wait a day after renewing before signing in to opusevent.com.

·       Sponsoring teacher must be in the room when recordings are made

You, as the sponsoring teacher, must be present when the student records his/her audition. Recordings may not be digitally altered. Read the full Digital Ethics Policy for details.

 ·     Changes to percussion and jazz audition requirements

Percussion auditions do not have a scales component. Tracks for the Jazz improv component are now available through McNally Smith. Choose appropriate track in Bb or F. Jazz improv audition components no longer use the Jamey Aebersold tracks. Jazz scales are new. Please make sure to download the new jazz scales.

 ·     Audition deadline is midnight, Friday, March 18

Late submissions will not be accepted. Give yourself a few extra days to handle snow days and other circumstances.

 ·     Audition cost remains $20 per audition

Payment is made by credit card once, after all audition information is entered for all of your auditioning students.

 ·     Resources available on MMEA’s website

Read Eligibility Policies, download an OpusEvent How-To Guide, and get sample student registration forms (vocal, winds/brass/percussion, jazz, and strings) on our website.
