****IMPORTANT ITEMS TO REMEMBER FOR AUDITION:

The most important part of scales are INTONATION and TONE.  Vibrato is not recommended for scales if it hurts intonation.

Only play the number of scale octaves that you can play accurately.  

When selecting a portion of a piece, make sure it demonstrates your strengths to the judge.****
