Right now I am preparing to record pre-audition tapes to submit for college and I feel like I am making absolutely no progress. I am working on the Mozart Violin Concerto No. 3 and Bach Partita no.2 Sarabande and I am getting so overwhelmed. I need to ace this audition tape and the audition but I feel like there is just too much to fix and I will never be able to get my intonation right. Being the emotional person I am my solution is to practice then cry, then practice and cry more because I don't know what to do. Even just taking small sections and trying to get them perfect is driving me crazy. I get it to sound as perfect as possible but then when I try to put it back into the piece it sounds exactly like it did before I isolated the problem!
I want to be good enough to get into this specific school and I feel like I am just setting myself up for failure somehow.
any advice? practice methods to try? anything? thanks
