IMPORTANT NOTICE regarding Brass & Woodwind Excerpt mp3 files *

For Contrabass Clarinet, record the excerpt to a single mp3 file. During the upload process, upload the one mp3 file into both "excerpt" slots (Slots #2 and #3). This will create a "complete entry" for this section. Judges will listen only to slot #2 for the excerpt.

All other brass and woodwind instruments will have two excerpt mp3 files.

* This note applies only to excerpts. The chromatic scale is to be recorded to a separate mp3 file for all brass and woodwind instruments (slot #1).
