Written in easy-to-read short chapters, '6 Weeks to Finals' is a clearly organised system for flautists to prepare and train musically and mentally for auditions. Sharon Sparrow, a flautist in the Detroit Symphony, has taken countless auditions herself, understands the rigors of preparation and the state of mind necessary for success. This textbook guides flautists through the all-important process behind a successful audition.

Leonard Slatkin, Music Director of the Detroit Symphony writes:
“In the world of the professional musician, there is no greater challenge than taking an audition. You are placed in a competitive situation but in reality, you are only competing with yourself. In order to successfully achieve your goals, you must be as prepared as possible, not only physically but mentally and emotionally. Sharon Sparrow deftly guides the aspiring flutist through the audition process, making strong points along this path. Her intimate understanding of how it all works comes from years of experience not only taking auditions, but judging them. She knows every aspect of what is expected and more importantly, what the applicant faces. With detailed examples and exercises designed to enhance the preparation process, Sharon’s book is an invaluable guide for anyone wishing to enter the complex world of orchestral performance. 6 Weeks to Finals is a must read – no, a must absorb – work that needs to be part of every performing musician’s library.”
