Re: I want to get in the top band - March 21st 2012, 06:15 AM

I'm a musician myself - I play clarinet primarily and some other woodwind instruments. My advice to you would be to practice your butt off! Try to know your audition piece inside and out as much as possible. If you want to be super dedicated, then you can even be practicing while you're not even playing your instrument. Read over your sheet music, make any necessary marks/cues you think would help you. Since your taking lessons, you should ask your teacher for some help. Something that me and my teacher did was set up a fake audition where he was the judge. He would take notes during the "audition" and then we would go over any iffy areas together. You have plenty of time left to practice for this audition, so that's a huge plus And lastly, be positive! If you're negative and keep thinking about what COULD happen, you could potentially psych yourself out when it comes time to audition. Good luck with everything. I bet you'll do great!
