Julliard Auditions (Help with music choices!!!!!)

Alright, so I'm a Junior in High School this year, and I want to try for Julliard next year. My flute instrutor's one of the best in the country (I was sooooo lucky to get her!!!) And she says I should start working on an audition solo NOW. She said to find something really personal, that's in tune ...

It varies, really... It kinda depends on the person, but I would suggest just pushing air in long wah-wah sounds (kinda think of hills and valleys in the amount of air) and slowly speeding them up. Contract the back of your throat slightly with each push. Try to practice keeping the sound smooth and...

I sit 1st, and am the Section Leader, but only because our SL from last year graduated. I honestly think our band director goes about our seating in a very fair and equal way. There are currently 19 flutes in our band, there will be 11 more once Marching Band ends, and all the Guard girls return to ...

You might keep an eye on HOW you do your vibrato. If you're just opening and contracting the back of your throat, or if you're just pushing air in spurts, that might be causing your problem. Try combining both to get a really good vibrato sound.

ACK!!! a frenchy!!! Lol, I'm a Spanish-geek so don't take it personally... I already practice and practice, 'till my fingers are about to fall off, but I'm hopeless at memorizing. That's why I'm always the WORST marcher in the band... I've actually run off the field crying in the middle of a show be...

I nedded the memorization tips just for me... I can never remember my ...

It's only during Marching Band that we have 19 flutes. Two of our flutes are the drum majorettes, and 12 are in Guard... I HAVE to be worried about my vibrato. I have a mike solo, and that is where the issues start... I'm not really a freak-out person most of the time, I had just had a bad day... Go...

Sorry about the panic... I'm not usually so stressed out. I've gotten my tone under control, and I can play the music (for the most part), but my vibrato sounds horrible! I'd be eternally grateful for some help with that... Also, if anyone has any memorization or teaching tips, that'd be really nice...

Let's see, I've been playing for almost six years now. But that's not really a reflection of anything, is it? My Highschool's program for last year's concert band included Armenian Dances, La Forza del Destino, and Beetoven's Symphony no. 6 in F Major. That doesn't have anything to do with the stude...

Vibrato

I'm sure you've noticed the "Panic mode MAJOR" topic that's up in the general hangout, that I posted yesterday. Sorry 'bout that... I'm not usually so stressed. Anyway. I've got my tone back under controll, but when I add vibrato, it gets all airy and has kind of a tinny sound to it. I called my flu...

Someone PLEASE help me!! I'm the ONLY upperclassman left, the others all graduated or joined guard, and I'm in deep trouble if I can't play the music. I'm practicing as much as I can, but I'm working two jobs and still trying to figure out how I'm going to get to the practices around those... I'd lo...

Very true flutiegurl, what you said about every human being different. I suppose you already knew that the reason everyone's tone is different is because the shape of our mouth cavities are different??
