How Do You Prepare For An Orchestral Audition?

Double Bassists Audition Tips

In this episode of ‘Ask Geoff & Lauren’ we look at how you prepare for an orchestral audition on the double bass. However the advice is also relevant for other instruments taking auditions.
This is a process Lauren has been though many times, so we explore how she gets the results and plays her best music.

Lauren refers to a website with a detailed list of orchestral excerpts for double bass.

Geoff refers to the ‘Winning the Audition’ series of podcasts by Jason Heath of Contrabass Conversations.

I hope you enjoy this discussion. Please join the conversation in the comments section below and good luck with your audition!
