Re: A new experience for me-any tips

How wonderful for you! It is a smart step that you are working with a teacher on your music. I am sure your audience will enjoy your music a great deal. After all, you were invited to play, no? This already says a lot! :D Best wishes and good luck to you.

What pieces will you be performing?

What great advice fluteguy has given you! :idea: You are obviously motivated to work hard for this goal. It often helps to have a plan, with the audition date in mind. Your audition is in September. Count the weeks until your audition date, and have mini-goals for each week. So, if you have an audit...
