Winds/Brass/Percussion Etudes are changing!

Check this page for updates.
(Jazz audition materials are not changing.)

MMEA is moving to etudes from published method books

  • There will be one lyrical and one technical etude, each shortened to 12-24 bars.
  • Every student is required to perform both of the etudes.
  • You will record each of the etudes as a separate track.
  • Judges have given consistent feedback this is important for comparison across auditions.
  • MMEA will not be posting PDFs of the etudes. We will be posting the list of etudes, including publisher.  
  • We are compiling the etude list now. 

We want your input! If you want to be part of the review process, email by Nov 10th, including which instrument(s) you’d like to review.

The selected etudes will be posted Dec 15th.
