What to Prepare for Instrumental Lesson Auditions

In general, you should prepare a brief selection of a piece that demonstrates your musical and technical ability. It's good to include a selection from a first movement of a classical sonata or concerto, or any medium - fast tempo piece that shows your ability to play in a steady tempo. If you arrive without music, prepare a scale of your choice in as many octaves as your technique permits you to play steadily and in tune. You may also improvise if auditioning for jazz lessons, but improvising is not a requirement.
