A soprano saxophone is needed for the 2015 High School Symphonic Band. Auditions will be January 10th, at the same time as all high school auditions. Interested students must complete the online application process and meet all existing deadlines. The soprano saxophone audition will follow the same requirements, ranges, and solo as the alto saxophone.

Dear colleagues,

It is my pleasure to announce that for the 2014-2015 school year, all NJSMA honor ensemble applications will now be done online. Thanks to an exhaustive amount of work form the executive board members as well as support from the NJMEA executive board, Region 1 has developed an easy-to-use process that will ensure great efficiency, accuracy, and better use of the technology available to us. The process has been developed to be user-friendly and intuitive, so that directors and students alike will be able to navigate the process with ease. Please be sure to carefully read all of the information, directions, and instructions carefully and completely as you navigate through the process, as some details may have changed or been revised from previous years. As always, the executive board members and I thank you all for your continued support of the Region activities, and we welcome your questions, comments, and feedback on this and all of the programs we offer to help make our school music programs the finest anywhere.

Very truly yours,

Peter F. Bauer, President
North Jersey School Music Association

Dear Region I Band Directors:

Please be advised that the Junior High and Intermediate Region Band audition requirements have changed from previous years!

The NJSMA board has approved the use of two separate requirement and solo lists, one for Junior Region Band (grade 9) and another for Intermediate Region Band (grades 7, 8). These changes reflect the plethora of suggestions the band division has received over the years and the hope is to make the Junior Region audition a more attainable, educational and positive experience for our students.

As you will see there have been several changes to the solo list, as well as scale requirement and instrument range modifications. Please take a moment to especially look at the ranges; some have changed significantly for grades 7, 8.

Make sure you are downloading the correct ranges and solo lists! If you are sponsoring a student that is in grades 7, and/or 8 you want to download the Intermediate Band forms. If on the other hand you are sponsoring a 9th grade student you want to download the Junior Band forms.

As always, if you have a solo suggestion or any helpful insight into how to better the region experience please contact your division chairs.

Thanks in advance,

Gregory Mulford and Matthew Spatz
Band Division Co-Chairs
