I recently stumbled across a blog post by the former principal trumpet of the Cincinnati Symphony, Phil Collins. His post reflected on the idea that a student who strives for a "note perfect audition" can still get dismissed simply because the committee will often feel his or her audition lacking an important component in their playing. This lack of an impression, as he states in the article, is due to the student being boring when it comes to being musical. This concept of being boring when you play a "note perfect" round goes further than leaving the committee saying next. This idea is something that is often found to be an epidemic in many young trumpeter's performances.
