Fearless Auditioning for College Applicants

Frequently Ask Questions

Is the Jan 4-6, 2013 session full?

- There will be room for people to sign up until it is posted on the website that we are full.

Are there any faculty for violins (or other instruments/voice)?

- We are working on how to best walk into your auditions, and how to perform your best.  Doing this is an ability complimentary to technical and musical abilities on your instrument.  You study a ton with your instrument's expert.  This seminar will have you performing for musicians who play instruments other than your own…performing for people who are much less "understanding or forgiving" for your instrument.  Many audition panels also have members who do not play your instrument.  String players will perform for wind players and singers, and vice versa.  Immense learning is available through this approach!!

- You will get musical commentary as well….but for these three intense days, we are working on your auditioning abilities.  Look at the schedule to see how we approach your learning in “audition preparation and performance”.
