The TPHS music program welcomes all interested students. Auditions help us to place you in the proper level.


Current Torrey Pines students and incoming students who wish to be placed in one of the upper level classes (Advanced Orchestra, Jazz Band, or Wind Ensemble) must audition for class placement.


No audition is required for placement in Symphonic Band or Intermediate Orchestra.

Students wishing to join any of the band or orchestra classes must already know how to play their instrument.



Choir & Guitar  are  open to  all levels. Beginners are welcome, and no audition is required.  Honor Choir is an intermediate to  advanced level class that requires an audition which will take place in the Fall once school has started.   


Audition Dates

Audition dates for students moving to TPHS over the summer will be announced here later in June.

Audition Sign Ups

The link to the audition scheduler will be posted here as soon as audition dates are announced.
