Default Re: Band audition

What kind of music? Is it for a band or a school or a school band? How long have you been playing? Are you reading or are you playing without reading?

No matter what your answers are to these questions, you really just need to relax and get comfortable with the music. I know its harder to actually relax than it is for me to just say it, but find that place in you that loves music and the drums and have fun. It won't be the end of the world if you do poorly. A friend of mine screwed up his first audition for Ne-Yo and still got called back for the gig and ended up touring with him. Depending on the situation, they may just be looking for a specific personality or attitude as well as someone who can play.
