5 steps to preparing for college auditions this fall

if you’re in your final year of college or high school and you’re preparing for college auditions…

…then this year is no regular year.

and if you don’t treat it as a special year with one huge, singular, life-consuming goal, then you may be disappointed when you receive your college audition results.

the thing is… most people are going to be unorganized.

they’re going to start working on their pre-screening tape at the last minute. they’re going to change audition repertoire. they’re going to be unorganized, unprepared, and play a sloppy audition as a result.

when you step into your college audition early next year, the faculty can tell if you’re organized or not. they can sense if you’re winging it.

the only way to earn a spot at the best conservatories and music schools is to start early, work hard and be super, unbelievably prepared at the audition.

the good news is that being organized and doing this project the right way just takes a few tweaks.

so today’s video is about 5 steps to preparing for your college auditions this fall.

it’s a quick summary of the most important things you should be doing between now and your college auditions in january, february and march.
