Arkansas All Region Orchestra Tutorials

All Region Orchestra is an opportunity for students to develop their musical skills and perform with other students from surrounding schools. The APO believes that all students who want to prepare for their audition should have access to quality instruction. We have partnered with local professionals to provide instructional videos free of charge. We thank the Walmart Foundation for supporting young musicians by contributing to this project.

Everything must be performed at the designated tempo.  No bowings or fingerings may be changed in Cadet music, Concert music, or the Senior etudes.  Only minimal bowing and fingerings may be added to the Senior orchestral excerpts. 
More information and instructions (including scales) available online at the Arkansas North Region Orchestras website.
