String bass and percussion will continue with the current cycle of etudes.


The scales for the middle school must be performed at the range listed on the website.

There is also a four-minute time limit on the middle school scales. The music performance classifications have changed for this year. Your district chairmen should have discussed these changes in detail at your district meetings or through hkrn.

The ABA has asked that when you are registering for events, you complete the process yourself by mailing the payment and registration to the appropriate person at ABA. We constantly receive checks and registrations sent to the wrong places, causing delays in processing.

Thanks for your attention to this detail. All-State will be in Huntsville.
