To: All Urban Fusion Independent Percussion Applicants

From: Tom Aungst - Percussion Arranger

Re: Audition Material



On Behalf of everyone at Urban Fusion Independent, I would like to welcome everyone and thank you
for choosing Urban Fusion. We are all very excited about the 2011 season and the opportunity to work
with each of you.

At the UF Audition we will focus on two major objectives. First, we will teach the basic style and
technique, and second, will hear each person play individually. We are also considering four major
factors in determining the battery section: your work ethic, attitude, and your ability to play.

I have enclosed exercises that you will be responsible for during the evaluation process. These
exercises will help you prepare for the audition, and give us the opportunity to move quickly through
the technique instruction. Beside the exercises, you should prepare a short solo—the length is up to
you. You can make one up or play one from a book. Also, be prepared to play various rudiments
from the rudiment sheet.



REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL:

SNARE: - All rudiments on rudiment sheet, short solo, and all exercises.

TENORS: - As many rudiments on rudiment sheet, short solo, and all exercises(learn all tenor splits
and snare part for Staggered Paradiddles).

BASSES: - Be able to play rudiments 1 – 9 on rudiment sheet, short solo, and all exercises( when
learning the bass splits, learn the drum part that you would like to try out for. Also learn snare part for
Double Beat Tag, Staggered Paradiddles, and Joel's Rolls, splits for these exercises will be taught at the
camp).


THINGS TO BRING:

1.Sticks for whatever instrument you are trying out for.
2.A music stand.
3.If possible, you own drum with stand or harness. If you can't, don't worry about it.

We look forward to meeting you at the camp.
