 Re: Rose Etudes at Warp 9 for (Texas) HS Auditions
Author: echi85

I successfully went through the system when I was in high school and I help many students today do the same thing. Here are things that have worked for me and my students:

1.) Preparation is key. If you know the etudes like the back of your hand, it's very unlikely you are going to play poorly. Auditions are honest. How you play is representative of how well prepared you are. Obsession is a must. Drill everything.

2.) Practice relaxed. If you plan on playing easily during an audition, you have to practice doing it at home.

3.) Play for others or record yourself often. If you try to simulate the conditions of an audition regularly, they become far less intimidating.

4.) Take 10% off your tempo. If you get really nervous, make sure you take it at least 10% slower in the actual audition. In Texas, cleanliness is the name of the game.

5.) Visualization. Do what many professional athletes do. You have to imagine yourself going through the process of the audition and doing well. From what you are going to eat in the morning to how you play. Do it often.

6.) Keep it in perspective. It's just music. You are not going to war. Be appreciative that you live in a society in which we have the luxury of playing music competitively.
