    Have you thought about DCA Cors in your area? Don't know exactly where you are, but Ohio also has Cincinnati Tradition and the Erie Thunderbirds (PA) is not too far from Canton. Great places to build your chops!

    I was considering the Thunderbirds, haven't done much research on them yet. Even though Cincinnati Tradition is relatively close, they are around 4 hours away from where I live, my parents would definitely not want to drive that far for an audition.

    How old are you Anna?  Three months is a relatively short time but, if you have several years before you age out, there is time to make our dreams a reality.  Bluecoats may not be within your grasp right now, but the audition process could help you identify what your weaknesses are and help you focus your efforts to reach your goals more quickly.

    They are definitely out of my range at the moment, but they are the only corp that is close enough to me that I could get my parents to agree to let me go to the auditions. Right now I am a junior in high school. Before I switched to trumpet I had been playing clarinet for 6 years.

  3. I would like to march in a corp in the future, but am far from being corp quality. I want to go out for auditions this year anyways to get experience on how the process works and what I should work on (I play trumpet), but the only corp remotely close to me is the Bluecoats (yikes). I don't want to go in there looking like a fool and them to think that I am wasting their time. Is it normal for people to audition without a good amount of experience? I have only been playing trumpet for three months and just sound like your average high school player.
