If you are interested in attending Lamar University as an undergraduate or graduate trumpet student, please follow these four easy steps:

1. Email me your name, contact phone number, and any recently-performed solo and/or etude literature.

2. Set up a FREE private lesson with me at your convenience. Prepare one lyrical etude and one technical etude, or a solo that contains both lyrical and technical elements. I will give you tips to help you improve and give suggestions on what to perform for your audition.

3. Go to the Lamar University Music Application Procedure page for the most up-to-date information regarding auditions and scholarships. It is highly recommended that you audition on an earlier date for a better chance to receive a higher scholarship. Email me with any questions you may have.

4. Pick your audition date and begin practicing. General audition requirements: play two etudes of contrasting nature and all major scales.
