I've enjoyed reading the recent practicing threads, especially the one on repetition, and have a question of my own to raise. I'm currently doing auditions and come up again and again against the problem of consistency. In a nerve-wracking situation, I haven't yet found a way to be dependable enough from start to finish.
What are some ways to practice for consistency, especially without losing musical freedom and spontanaeity? I use slow practice, drill exercises, metronome work and focus a lot on tension release, but still haven't managed to find that magic ingredient. Ideas?
