General Instructions for Joining the AUMB
For information on the general process for becoming a member of the Auburn University Marching Band Drumline and Front Ensemble, please visit the Join the AUMB page. If you are certain that you will be auditioning for the AUMB Drumline or Front Ensemble, please join the "Auburn University Drumline 2017 Auditions" Facebook group.
You must have applied and been accepted to Auburn University at the time of the audition. If you have not applied, please do so immediately. This can be accomplished online at http://www.auburn.edu/admissions.
The 2017 Auditions will be held during a weekend camp May 26 - 28, 2017. Registration begins at noon on Friday, and the camp ends at 4pm on Sunday. Callback auditions for Snare/Tenor/Bass will be held August 7 and for Front Ensemble/Cymbals on August 8.
The 2017 Audition packets will be posted later this spring. The 2016 audition packets are below for reference.
A one time, non refundable audition fee of $30 is due at check in. Please make checks payable to “AUMB” (Auburn University Marching Band).
Note to Those Attending Camp War Eagle:
If you are an entering freshman or transfer student and will be attending Camp War Eagle, you may plan to attend the Camp War Eagle session immediately before or after the audition camp. The audition camp is arranged so that you can attend either session, and only make one trip to Auburn’s campus during the summer. For those attending the Camp War Eagle session before the audition camp, plan on coming straight to camp once CWE is finished.
Food and Housing:
Food and housing are not provided for the auditions – please plan accordingly. However, we are usually able to arrange housing for a certain number of out-of-town students with in-town members. Please call Dr. Rosener at (334) 844-3160 for assistance in arranging housing.

Metronome – for individual practice (optional)
