UPDATE: He literally won another audition since I announced this. 🀣 Andrew is also the new Principal Tuba of the York Symphony Orchestra! Think he might be in a groove on this audition thing...

-----

I'm excited to announce that Andrew Dougherty of the U. S. Army Ceremonial Band (and my former student!) is my next guest for a special live Winning the Audition!

Andrew has won not one but two military band auditions in the last few years and seems to know a little about winning professional auditions!

Join us Tuesday, March 22nd at 8:30 pm Eastern via Zoom while we unpack *exactly* how he did it.

Can't make it live? This will be available for long-term viewing via the Hitz Academy Library.

***Use offer code "army" to get $10 off through this Friday only!***

Topics to include:

πŸ‘‰ How he mentally approached audition day in order to play at his best when it counted
πŸ‘‰ His practicing schedule for the months leading up to the audition
πŸ‘‰ Specific practicing techniques he used to polish his excerpts
πŸ‘‰ A detailed look at the actual auditions (including anything he wasn't expecting)
πŸ‘‰ What he's learned from the professional auditions he didn't win

The discount only runs through Friday, March 18th so grab it while you can.

Hope to see you there!
