Learn the music?
Need more specific questions!!! How to do better on what? If you show
up, it's better than if you don't. If you know the music, it's better
than if you don't. If you practice the music, it's better than if you
don't. Warm-up before the audition, but keep your practicing to a strict
minimum before walking into the challenge. If you know the music, then
just let it flow. Don't psyche yourself out by making mistakes right
before the challenge.

If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to
see it, do the other trees make fun of it?
If an elephant falls, which suffers more: the elephant or the ground?
