Hello Future Music Eagle Parents

Hello Future Music Eagle Parents,

The Walnut Hills High School Music Department is excited that your son or daughter is interested in auditioning for one of our music classes. We will need to schedule a virtual audition through Google Meet so that we can hear your child sing (choir) or play (bands and orchestras) their instrument so that we get them placed in the proper level music class. Below, I have provided you with email addresses of each teacher so that you can contact them and set up a video audition. We would like the parent(s) to be in on the audition process. If you don't have a way to do a video audition, please let us know and we will work something else out.

We are looking forward to hearing your child play or sing at their audition. We want this to be a fun and rewarding experience, not a stressful one. Please understand that we simply want to place your child in the ensemble that will best fit their needs. This is not about being in the “best” ensemble but rather what is best for each individual student.

Please contact the following teachers to schedule a video audition and/or with any questions you might have:
