I was. I never took kids who were unprepared to auditions because I had enough respect for my fellow colleagues not to waste their time. Additionally, if you bring kids who are unprepared and don't take advantage of the key signature or rhythms available to them on the sheet of music, it's a direct reflection on the director. Having a basic understanding of the music, but messing up while playing is one thing and that's part of the audition process. I'm talking about kids who MAYBE "read" through the music literally 30 seconds before walking into that room.
STOP. WASTING. EVERYONE'S. TIME.
: You sound like a great band director.
