Step 5

attend your workshop experience

During the workshops, there will be a good chance there will be more people auditioning than spots available in the ensemble. We want to make sure you are informed of the workshop process, to keep your mind at ease, so you can fully enjoy the educational experience being offered and concentrate on your audition. Attend the workshops and enjoy your time! Come prepared with a positive attitude, meet new people, and take in as much information as you can during the workshops.


  • At The Royal Cavaliers Performing Arts we do not utilize a traditional “cut” system when auditioning members. We believe each participant should fully enjoy the workshops. At the end of the workshops, you will meet with an instructor and be given a number rating of 1, 2, or 3.

  • During the workshops, you will be evaluated on and will need to be able to demonstrate the following:
    1. A desire to be in the organization. A great attitude and the ability to take instruction are invaluable.
    2. The skills required to be in the ensemble.
    3. Commitment to the rehearsal schedule. You need to be in attendance.
    4. Ability to pay tuition. We strive to keep our tuition lower than most other organization, but we need your commitment to meet your financial obligation in a timely manner.

  • Royal Cavaliers Performing Arts does not provide transportation to workshops. You are responsible for your travel arrangements for workshops, rehearsals and local shows

what to bring to workshops

  • You are encouraged to bring your own instrument and mouthpiece. The Organization owned instruments will not be issued out until the rehearsals starts and contracts are executed.

  • Please be sure to wear athletic type clothing (t-shirt and shorts) and tennis shoes during your time at the workshops. This will help for mobility during any stretch exercises and visual portions of the workshops. Please avoid wearing jeans or other clothing that may be restraining.

  • Please bring workshops material, water, towel and a GREAT ATTITUDE!
