Welcome, Future Hawks! 

Watch THIS VIDEO to meet Mr. Blackman!

Please read the information about the River Hill High School band program and the band placement/audition process included HERE.  Important audition information is included on the third page.

Click HERE for your audition music.  


Be sure that you have located the correct page for your instrument, and read the instructions carefully.  Wind players, please remember to include your chromatic scale on your recording.  If you choose to play something other than the music I’ve posted, please be prepared to upload a scan so I can see what I’m listening to. Flutists who would also like to play piccolo may record anything that you like on piccolo (in addition to the flute audition).

Audition videos will be used to place students in the appropriate band class, and will be due by January 30.


Complete the Google form HERE by JANUARY 30.  You will need to be logged into your HCPSS Google account to access the form.  Be prepared to provide the following information:

- Student name, email address, phone number, current grade, instrument, private teacher (if you have one), and  T-shirt size

- Parent name, email address, phone number (optional for a second parent)

- A scan or picture of the music you will be playing (if you are playing a piece other than the posted music) to upload

- Your audition video to upload


Please let me know if you have any questions!
