This is a valuable video lesson about how to prepare for an audition and how to control your nerves during that audition. Keep in mind that 50 trumpeters may audition for the spot, but only one can win, so you need to find a way to stand out. By using a few examples, John Parker — who has won some big auditions even though he is only 24 years old — will show you some secrets on how to achieve it.
