THE MOZART CONCERTOS: A CHANCE TO MAKE YOUR BEST IMPRESSION
with LINDA TOOTE

At every college and orchestra audition you will almost certainly be asked to play a Mozart concerto.  Take a fresh look at what really matters:  learn some specific ways to stabilize your rhythm, make your articulation sparkle, play musical phrases rather than the phrases your flute wants to make, improve intonation on your note endings.  These are the aspects of  your performance which will make the audition committee sit up and take notice.
