College Audition Preparation

College Audition Preparation


Participant Comments

Thank you so much for that great week at Indiana. You taught me so many things that I would not have been able to think of by myself. Your ways of teaching me proper airflow, as well as other ways of becoming a better player have GREATLY benefited me. After CAP, I came back with such a great tone. I never thought that I would be able to play that well until I was well into college. Because of you (as well as the IU faculty), I'm becoming the player that I've dreamed to be.
