    This episode has a detailed discussion of common mistakes players make when sending in audition tapes. Hopefully it is helpful to you in making higher quality tapes for your next audition!

    A native of the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Ryan Brewer (b.1992) began playing trumpet at the age of 10. He now resides in Hanover, MD where he is a member of the Concert Band and Chamber Brass of The United States Army Field Band, the premier touring ensemble of the U.S. Army. In his three years in the Army, Ryan has performed at many high-profile events such as the Presidential Inaugural Parade in Washington, D.C., the 242nd Army Birthday Ball, and has performed on 8 tours with the band across the US. Ryan received his Bachelor's Degree in Performance from North Texas while studying with Keith Johnson. Ryan received a Master of Music degree in performance from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, TX. Ryan studied with Dr. Gary Wurtz and was a Graduate Teaching Assistant.

    Kevin Paul, trumpet, currently serves in The United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own,” previously served in the U.S. Army Field Band, and has auditioned for every military band in Washington D.C. In addition to his rich and exciting performance career in the U.S. Army Band, he runs militarytrumpetjobs.com and tours and performs with the Army Music Trumpet Ensemble. Kevin is a wealth of knowledge on all things military music and I am so glad he took the time to answer these questions. There are so many fantastic career opportunities for musicians in the U.S. military bands and I hope this interview can shed some more light on the subject for anyone interested in pursuing these jobs. Please enjoy and feel free to leave questions or comments for Kevin below or in the official Audition Playbook discussion group.

    Trombonist Jeremy Wilson is acclaimed for the versatility and lyricism of his playing as well as his insight and commitment as a teacher. Currently Associate Professor of Trombone at Vanderbilt University’s Blair School of Music, Wilson is something of a legend in trombone circles. On his first-ever audition attempt at the age of 25, he won a prestigious position with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and its sister organization, the orchestra of the Vienna State Opera. Just out of college, he honed his performance skills in Vienna as a member of one of the most renowned musical organizations in the world before returning to his home state to start a new chapter as an educator, soloist, and chamber musician. 
    He developed the BODY MIND SPIRIT Method over the course of several years as a response to the patterns of learning, music-making, practice, and behavior he observed in his work as an educator, both at Vanderbilt and across the globe.  His YouTube videos on the subject have been viewed by thousands, and have helped musicians both young and old rediscover a passion for the music-making process, access their years of practice when in high-pressure performance situations, and perform works with stylistic integrity and expression.

Most inspiring podcast I have ever listened too

Ryan does an excellent job at bringing in other professionals (mostly musicians) to talk about their stories. It is amazing to hear how Ryan is learning from his colleagues and what the general listener can learn! This IS NOT a podcast for musicians, but rather a podcast for anyone who wants to learn about ways to take different life approaches. 10/10 recommend and I hope you can learn something!

Great Podcast

If you’re a musician or just a person trying to better themselves in any way this podcast is a great choice. Ryan does a great job interviewing people from all facets of the music world, documenting their experiences in their field. Though I’m a musician and teacher my favorite episodes are when he’s talking about life and self-improvement. My favorite was when he talked about its not the critic who counts. With that said, Ryan does an excellent job and you’re only going to leave encouraged and inspired to give your best after listening to his podcast. Keep it coming!

This podcast is one of the best resources for any musician.

The stories I hear in this podcast are not only informative, but inspiring. I always listen to a few episodes leading up to an audition or an important performance. A professor showed me the podcast and, since then, I have been a big fan.
