 Re: Rose Etudes at Warp 9 for (Texas) HS Auditions
Author: zhangray4

Just a couple videos I would like to share regarding how to prepare for concerts and auditions. I agree with almost all the advices in the videos.

How to impress in auditions: https://youtu.be/SdAnogOKR0I
(really liked Stefan Schweigert, the second guy's, advice, since that is EXACTLY what I do. I tell my own story.)

How to prepare for concerts: https://youtu.be/oKIIDJOt7DA

I am a high school senior and has been in all state for the last 4 years, not planning to go for a 5th year however. For me, I was nervous my first few years. But later on, I did not feel nervous at all. I would play the audition music at home so much my tone-deaf dad started singing it. I played it while warming up in band and it would become familiar to most people in my band. And within a few months, I would be practicing the audition music without the actual music: I've memorized it already. I listen to the music wherever I go. By listening and playing the music wherever I go, it makes me feel that I can play the music whenever I want to for whoever wants to hear it.

I go in the audition room and play the pieces all by memory. Personally, I close my eyes so that I don't distracted by anything. [My friend once told me that she swear she saw the person motion her to stop out of the corner of her eyes, but when she stopped, they were confused. so she had to play from the beginning but she was nervous and didn't play as well]. And since I know I practiced all I could, I am not that nervous.
