Abstract/Description: This study examines the military's process of selecting trumpet excerpts used for audition screening along with performance preparation advice for the top ten most commonly requested excerpts within the premier military bands in the United States of America: The Pershing's Own Marine Band, The President's Own Army Band, The U.S. Navy Band, The U.S. Air Force Band, and The U.S. Coast Guard Band. The first step in this process is to collect as many audition lists for trumpet as possible and compile them into a single chart. This chart will display every excerpt that is being requested by each of the five premier bands and will also display which trumpet excerpts are requested by multiple bands. From this chart, the top ten trumpet excerpts will be confirmed and sent to members of the premier military bands along with a short four-question survey designed to help understand why these ten excerpts are being requested over others. Using the information gathered from the survey, a learning approach will be provided, suggesting how best to prepare the excerpts for auditions.
