Learn The Music. Ask what you need to learn for the audition and get the music ahead of time. Find out as much as possible about what they are looking for, and try and do as much as you can to prepare. Learn the drum parts and the arrangements as closely as possible to the version on the CDs or tapes that they give you. You never know what they are looking for, but that’s a good starting point. Get into the vibe of the music as much as possible so that everything you play comes from that vibe.
