    Hi everyone

    I have this huge audition on Monday and for some reason or another my last practice sessions have gone to hell and today is no exception. My range, endurance, sound, everything is on the outs what can I do?

    Also my audition is at 1:30. I have the opportunity to go in early to their band room and warm up for the morning while they are out. What I was wondering is how much should I play in the morning and the "proper" way to prepare myself for the audition without being over tired or not warmed up enough.

    My nerves would not be as shot if I was playing a little better.

    I know this is easier said than done, but you have to relax.

    Be confident in your preparation, your abilities and focus on the music.

    This holds true in various aspects of life, not just music (except the focus on the music part of course) :D

    You were right. I was confident, relaxed and focused and to be honest I never played better in my life. Everything went off without a hitch. Now I play the waiting game.
