• Energy spent on worrying is better spent on practicing!
  • Remember that the only thing you have control over is your audition preparation – focus on that instead of the things out of your control (such as how other musicians will play)
  • Replace negative/anxious thoughts with positive ones – instead of thinking that you’ll feel horribly nervous, think about how relaxed and excited you will feel to be able to play the music you’ve worked hard on preparing
  • Have family and friends help you prepare by walking into a room and playing for them as you would in an audition. Doing this will teach you how to switch into performance mode quickly
