AUDITION EXECUTION | Marching Golden Flashes | Kent State University

AUDITION EXECUTION

  • Give yourself plenty of time to do everything (i.e. get up early, have a leisurely meal, arrive early to the audition)
  • Avoid over-practicing, which may cause nerve problems and fatigue
  • Warm up well and practice audition material under tempo
  • At the site, warm up alone and don’t listen to other players
  • Play to your own standards; don’t try to guess how the committee would like something performed
  • Take some risks; communicate the music’s message
  • Maintain a positive appearance even if you do not think you played well
  • Evaluate the audition experience
