Fellow musicians, I respectfully ask that you refrain from bickering on my thread. For my own personal reasons, I have decided that I would like to pursue the option of military music after college graduation (among other career options). I am not here to debate the motivations or realities surrounding the job. I am simply asking for information from those who know more than I do - which is what I thought was the point of this website. I will reiterate again: Can anyone shed some light on the audition process? And I'm referring to a trumpet audition, not a conductor's. I would just like to find a way to get a little conducting experience while in the military, and if anyone knows if that is possible to do, please let me know. Thank you for your courtesy.
