so this one time, i was watching a video audition. and while the applicant was playing, some random guy was just laying on a couch right next to them.

like JUST LAYING THERE, TAKING A NAP. seriously.

i obviously couldn’t take my eyes off of him during the entire video. and halfway through one of the pieces, he ROLLED OVER.

don’t  do  that.

why?

i feel i shouldn’t even have to explain this one. but since someone actually sent that video in, i guess i do.

the audition judge (someone like me) is going to be distracted. and they'll think that you don’t pay attention to details.

you are almost definitely going to make an audition video at some point. 

probably this year.

the national youth orchestra video is due november 15th and juilliard prescreening is due december 1st, for instance.

i want to help you make a better audition video! 

so today i made a video about 3 ways you can screw up a video audition, and, of course, how to avoid those rookie mistakes.
