TDBA Region/State Workshop 2022

Join us Saturday, September 10, 2022 at Grace Presbyterian Church in Plano for the return of TDBA events! This workshop is designed for students entering grades 9-12 who are preparing All-Region and All-State auditions. See the schedule below, and click the MORE INFORMATION button at the bottom of the page for complete details and to register.

Group warmup and etude sessions will be taught by TDBA organizers Andrew Goins and Bob Simmons, both bass teachers and freelance bassists around the DFW area with proven success preparing students for All-Region auditions in multiple regions.


State excerpts will be taught by our wonderful guest clinician, Dr. Jack Unzicker, bass professor at The University of Texas at Arlington! Dr. Unzicker regularly plays with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, and Dallas Opera, among others, and regularly works with high school students on All-State preparation.
