Auditions

Auditions and try-outs

are a necessary part of the process.

You get one shot to prove you’re capable.

People watch and make snap decisions about your ability level.

In short, they can be stressful.

But, what if I told you they don’t have to be stressful?

I’ve found with a lot of students, the anxiety comes from three areas:

  1. Not knowing what to expect
  2. Not knowing what to focus on
  3. Not knowing how or what to prepare

If you can address these area, you can lessen a lot of the stress on your brain during the audition.


MAKE AN AUDITION PLAN

Before the audition. Managing these stressors will allow you to devote more of your energy towards performing and showcasing your very best self; focus on executing.

During the audition. Understand what you need to be thinking and doing at the camp to demonstrate your potential as a member. Maximize your chances of getting a call back.

Between the auditions. Put in the work, return to the next camp ready to impress and earn a spot.

Auditions don’t have to be stressful. They’re your chance to learn and showcase what you can do.

They should be fun.

EXPERIENCE IS EVERYTHING

Why would you come here for help?

When I went to my first drum corps audition in high school, I had no idea what I was doing. I didn’t know what to expect, what was going to happen, or that I should have prepared anything particular in advance…

Totally wrong.

Since then, I’ve experienced this process from almost every perspective over the course of my career at the World Class level:

  • AS A MEMBER…auditioned and successfully made two Top 12 groups, spent 4 summers touring, winning 2 World Championship titles
  • AS A STAFF MEMBER…battery & front ensemble tech, percussion caption head, director – sitting through many, many individual auditions choosing and training members
  • AS A TEACHER…prepared students starting as beginning percussionists all the way to ultimately making their dream World Class indoor and outdoor groups

The point is, most people figure all this out through trial and error as they work through the process. That’s what I had to do.

This takes time.

Instead, take advantage of my experience to expedite your learning curve.

 


THE AUDITION FOUNDER’S GROUP

For the first time ever, I’m sharing all the content and insight that I’ve been using to answer questions on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube in an Audition Founder’s Group.

As a Founding Member, I’ll be personally coaching a group of highly motivated individuals, answering your questions and helping you prepare for your audition.

Think of all the questions you have about the audition process, plus all the questions you didn’t even know you had. OUR GOAL is to answer all of them before you arrive to Friday night camp.

The less energy you spend wondering leaves you with more time executing.

We’ll discuss things such as:

  • Top 10 mistakes people make at auditions
  • 5 strategies to maximize your camp experience
  • 5 mindsets to get a call back
  • all the things you should be doing between camps to show back up the following month, ready to impress.

 

WHAT’S SPECIAL about this course is we’ll be working over 12 weeks to help you before, during, and after the audition to keep you moving forward. It is not a single touch-point, but a long term investment in each member over a long period of time.

Furthermore, as beta members of the group, you will be directly influencing the content of this course, asking questions and sharing what they personally need in their audition process.

In short, the Founding Members will receive a tailored course for their personal audition process.


WHY JOIN THE GROUP?

The Founder’s Group of this community will be capped at 30 people this 2017 season to provide the following:

Community. We create the community. Keep each other motivated and moving forward. Eliminate the, “I’m alone” feeling. Ask each other questions, share and celebrate each other’s successes, create and ride the collective wave.

Content. We create the content. Specific activities will get you on track, and original content will be created as a direct result of what you ask and need. Blueprint for what you should be doing before, during, and after the audition. Answer all the questions you have and all the questions you didn’t know you had, logistics of budget and travel, gather the materials you need.

Coaching. We coach each other into the best version of ourselves for audition weekend. In our small group format, I will directly coach members of the group, answering questions through weekly office hours, and helping Founders course correct and take the guesswork out of what you should be doing.

PLUS Bonus interviews and blog content from staff, recent age-outs, and current members.

“LOOK STRONG, FEEL CONFIDENT, PLAY CLEAN.”

This course is not a guarantee that you get a callback or win a spot.

What it IS is a guarantee that you will have the insight and information to approach the audition with confidence and a plan so you have your best chance of getting that call back and winning a spot.

Because this is the first group, I will be devoting a large amount of personal attention to the Founder’s Group. The most personal attention you can get from me short of taking a weekly private lesson.

Best of all, you’ll have lifetime access to the material in this group, so you can refer back to this material at any point.

Use the information this season and for future season of auditions. Invest in yourself for the long game!

START BUILDING YOUR COURSE

You’re ready to rock and roll. You practice like your life depends on it.

The only thing you’re missing is a team to back you up.

Join the group today so I can start guiding you through the process along with other people that are just as motivated as you.
