Auditions + Competitions
Competitions can be an exhilarating, motivating event that drives students towards a short-term goal. Some of the most intense improvements we see happen just after a competition, audition, or performance. Here at the Seattle Cello Academy we promote a healthy balance of motivation via competition without it becoming the reason for practicing.
There are several orchestras outside of the public schools that students may choose to enroll in as their levels increase and they want to be in groups with students more similar to their level and commitment to cello. Every orchestra will require an audition (even the school orchestras!) and keeping an eye on the dates helps us to better plan and prepare for the pertinent ones.
