Wisconsin S&E Competition

For those of you enrolled in a Wisconsin public school, please sign up with your orchestra, band or choir director.

For those not enrolled in a Wisconsin public school:


If you are not enrolled in a public school and need help signing up for solo and ensemble, please let me know as early as possible (December/January). For those of you in Public school, please contact the orchestra or music teacher there to get signed up. I cannot sign you up.

For non-home-schooled Illinois residents: please contact a music teacher (choir or band if there is no orchestra) at your school to get signed up. (I am pretty sure she said private school students as well, when I asked her, so please indicate that you are my student and that I am in Pleasant Prairie, WI)
(Please note, if you are home schooled, let me know.)

For Wisconsin residents and Illinois Homeschooled students:  Search for solo or ensemble selections (ensembles for home schooled students must be done with siblings.)
