Hey I just had chair auditions the other day and while I have been playing longer than both the other people (only three alto saxes at my school, about a 40 person band) I got third chair. We had a bit of prepared music, two scales, and sight reading. We all did well on prepared music, bombed the sight reading, but I really messed up the scales which took me out, but my band director couldn't decide and they had the run-offs this morning. The scales were easy ones too that I knew, it was (btw these are alto sax scales) D and Ab. I got nervous and forgot to go the second octave (which is real easy for me) and totally forgot how many flats there were in Ab. I totally screwed up the Ab scale. This doesn't happen during concerts, but whenever I have to play alone and I am being judged, I get real nervous. Any tips? Thanks in advance!
