Handbook (Section III, Page 3 - E) for the audition procedures for vocal students.

2014 Audition Reminders:

There will be no deviances allowed whatsoever from the procedure as listed in the NMMEA Handbook (which are included below for your convenience). In particular, the sight-reading portion of the audition will require the playing of the tonal series (scale, arpeggio as specified, tonic, starting pitch) both before AND after the one minute study period. This will be done by the accompanist (or, in the absence of an accompanist, by the judge). The Handbook does not indicate that the student may not sing along with the tonal series, so this is up to the student and their instructor. However, the playing of the series as specified must happen in each and every audition.
Section 2 e. states "
Each audition is to be heard without interruption" meaning that once an audition starts, all three components must be concluded in one continuous seven-minute time period.
