Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of school enrollment, distance to audition site, sex of auditionees, and instrument type on the results of the 1992–97 South Dakota all-state band auditions. Results include the following: (1) total audition scores were better for students from larger schools and for those who traveled a shorter distance to the audition; (2) female students’ scores were significantly better than those of male students, but there was no significant difference in the percentages of successful auditions between males and females; (3) scores differed significantly between instrument groups, with flutes and double reeds receiving the best scores, followed by saxophones, trumpets and French horns, low brass and string basses, and clarinets; and (4) the variables of distance to audition site, instrument group, and sex accounted for 11% of the variance in total audition scores.
