Cut yourself some slack kid. Music is supposed to be enjoyable. And =
everybody who ventures into it for a living has to start somewhere. You =
obviously aren't at the bottom, given the list of credentials you =
present. Take the time to enjoy your playing and think of your audition =
as an opportunity to play for someone and make them happy with your =
playing. Yes, you will be critiqued, but that is how you get chosen for =
placement purposes. If there is no one to listen to your playing, there =
isn't much sense in playing to begin with. It is normal to be nervous, =
but don't burn the building before you even get inside. You have loads =
of experience and if your grades are reasonable, you are worrying over =
nothing. You will get into school. Just complete the application =
process on time and continue preparing for your auditions. And we will =
all hope that you find a teacher soon, too. Best wishes.
