DC Audition - How to Join the Contest

How to Enter:

  1. Download the file "JohnWackermanContest.zip" containing the Audio Tracks and Drum Transcription.
  2. Download Contest Files

  3. Film yourself playing drums to the piece. When filming yourself playing, you will be judged on talent, not on video or audio quality. You can use headphones to hear the piece while playing and film your playing. It’s not important for the finalist judges to hear the background track. Also, remember that it is not necessary to know how to read in order to enter this contest. The download includes the drum part transcription along with the MP3 audio track and you can choose to just memorize the drum part MP3.
