Video Upload Auditions: For those who do not audition live and instead upload a video audition to the online application, zoom in when creating your video; the camera angle only needs to capture your image above the shoulders, not a head-to-toe image. Be sure the camera angle is filming your right-side profile (not straight ahead of you nor your left-side profile) so your instrument’s horn does not block your face within the camera angle. Also ensure your music stand is not blocking the camera’s view of your profile.
