I'm starting what I expect to be a 2-month preparation for an orchestra audition (the date hasn't been determined yet). I will put together a plan, but am a bit unsure how to start. Could some of you share your process for preparing for an audition? How do you plan? What do you practice first, and how? How much do you practice? When is it too much? (Is it ever?) When and how to start performing? What are your routines? Who do you play for, how many times? How do you deal with the physical tension and mental pressure?
Well, you get the picture... if there are other posts covering this, I'd be glad to take a look (I couldn't find any).
