What advice would you give to someone who is interested in joining Cavaliers Indoor Percussion?

Show fearlessness. Even if you may not feel confident in your playing ability, there is still so much more I'm sure you have to offer. By projecting confidence and comfort while playing your instrument, you have already shown off a great strength that even some of the strongest musicians have a hard time grasping. If you happen to get cut, keep pushing. Let it make you hungrier for a position in this organization. I have been cut from numerous ensembles in the past, and every "unsuccessful" audition experience has fueled the fire that lead me to The Cavaliers organization.
