Region tryouts and Percussion

Does everyone know that the Percussion students will record both mallet etudes on the same track for virtual auditions? I think some may have assumed different. But if a kid nails the 2 mallet, and messes up the 4 mallet, they will have to rerecord both. We were commanded to do it this way with no explanation. |
Then, and I'm not making this up, she said that for triple panels, we should change the rules, and instead of going with the prescribed scoring, we should judge each (snare, 2 mallet, 4 mallet) equally. That would also mean that whoever got stuck on the third panel would have to some how fast forward to the middle of the track where the 4 mallet etude begins for each kid.
Still don't know if she's going to say its ok to use metronomes or practice tracks while a student is recording like she did with jazz.
