The North Carolina Symphony’s Tune-Up! Workshop series provides an opportunity for middle and high school musicians to “tune-up” and virtually interact with a NCS musician. The NCS musician leads a one-hour online workshop on a specific piece of music—All-District or All-State audition solo—or topic related to their instrument. Learn tips and tricks to improve your skills and technique—plus, students will have the opportunity to play for the class and receive personal feedback and instruction from the NCS musician!


  • Digital sheet music for selected solo
  • Video recording of NCS musician performing selected solo
  • Supplemental exercises for practice
  • Zoom link and password
