1. All components of the video audition must be done in ONE take. Do not stop and start the
camera between components.
2. If you do not like a take, you may try again, as long as your final submission is in one continuous, unedited take. 3. You may not edit, cut, splice, or otherwise alter your performance.
4. Video picture must remain stationary: no panning, zooming, multiple cameras, fading in/out.
5. Video Framing: As auditions are “blind”- place the video recording device so that you can NOT be seen, but that judges can see that the video is an uninterrupted, single-take recording.
6. Video must not exceed 6 minutes. Judges will stop watching at 6 minutes. Make sure all the components of your audition fit within 6 minutes. It is ok if your video is less than 6 minutes.
7. Other helpful hints:
* Tune your instrument to A=440.
* Difficult scales will receive a higher score than easier ones. However, a well-played scale, no matter the difficulty, is best.
*You may choose any section. More difficult sections will receive a higher difficulty score. Skip any long rests.
