Fife Placement Assessment

Play two contrasting pieces of your choice. 

  • We suggest that one piece be a standard marching tune, and the other can be whatever you like.
  • Each piece should be no longer than one minute in duration. 
  • Fifers who want to be considered for playing harmony parts, include the Fife 2 part from the enclosed arrangement of pdfThe Green Cockade, by John Ciaglia, as one of their audition pieces.

Note that Mr. Ciaglia writes his music in modern flute notation, which is one octave higher than traditional fife notation. For instance, the space just below the G clef staff is D1, the lowest D on the fife.
