In this flexible guide, Skiano shows you step-by-step how you can effectively organize your materials and time in order to maximize your potential at your next audition. Learn how to plan your travel to win, how to divide an audition list to practice effectively, what to do in the hotel, how to manage time in the warmup room, how to get feedback, and how to process feedback in the most helpful way. In addition, you’ll find plenty of helpful practice suggestions to address fundamental issues like technique, musical expression, and intonation.
