talent? no. it’s all about process.

i’ve watched musicians who have gone through years of audition rejections make just one or two simple tweaks in their process and suddenly advance for the first time. imagine how your next audition could be different if you found the root causes of your biggest audition struggles and corrected them, one by one. imagine what you could accomplish with a professional-level audition preparation process.

the committee.

increase the odds of advancing by removing every last reason for jury members to vote no.


a personalized audition preparation process, designed for you.

over four months of coaching, we’ll refine your personal, unique audition preparation process to attack your obstacles and showcase your strengths. you’ll be left with the plan, the tools, and the confidence to prepare for your next audition at the highest level.

3. biweekly strategy sessions

every two weeks, the group will gather to pick apart one major component of the audition preparation process. we’ll watch each other work, brainstorm improvements, and ensure you’re executing that process in the most effective way possible.

when you prepare alone you tend to get stuck and obsess about the wrong things. by joining rob’s inner circle you’re joining a team of driven musicians who will keep you pointed in the right direction. through group brainstorming, healthy competition, and accountability, you’ll get the support you need to make incredible progress.

so… how long are you going to wait to start auditioning the right way?


how many more calls to your friends and family saying, “i thought everything was pretty good, but it just didn’t work out this time”? how much longer are you going to put up with feeling panic when the next audition is getting closer and closer?

sure… you could just keep doing what you’ve been doing and hope for the best. or we can go on this journey together in rob’s inner circle and barrel through every last audition struggle, once and for all.
