The Audition Lab Digital Course

Get a powerful plan and strategy for your next audition


More hours in the practice room doesn't equal results! It's easy to get obsessed with counting hours of practice. And sure - usually you’ve got to put the time in to see results.

But a lot of what goes into successful auditions happens alongside the practice room: creating a routine, resilient mindset, strong mental and physical preparation, and a water-tight strategy at the audition itself.

In this 6-module digital course, seasoned audition veteran & principal clarinetist of the Detroit Symphony Ralph Skiano brings his book, Behind the Screen: A Winner's Guide to Preparing Your Next Audition, to vivid life. Step-by-step, he'll coach you to effectively organize your materials and time in order to maximize your potential at your next audition


▶︎ MODULE 1: PREPARE Lessons this week focuses on making the decision to commit to an audition, gathering materials, creating your listening list and audition book, the "audition-mode" warm-up, making a plan for physical and mental toughness, and creating your practice chart. 

▶︎ MODULE 2: PRACTICE PHASE ONE You'll learn how to get familiar with the repertoire, and lay a foundation for highly technical excerpts. Practice routines are the name of the game here!  

▶︎ MODULE 3:  PRACTICE PHASE TWO Get to work!  You'll learn how to create a rotation system for your excerpts with practical suggestions for setting goals, using your recording device, using a timer, and creating practice tracks. 

▶︎ MODULE 4:  PRACTICE PHASE THREE Get Performing!  This week you'll learn to practice performing: creating randomized rounds, thinking about mini-recitals, and how to approach mock auditions. 

 ▶︎ MODULE 5:  PRACTICE PHASE 4 Get Inspired!  Learn how to record yourself in this phase, how to listen, and get inspired to play your best. Staying in that positive, excited mindset is key.  

▶︎ MODULE 6: PERFORMING THE AUDITION It's audition time! You're planning how to use your time in the hotel, at the audition and after you play.
