i'm rob. i won my audition in the MET orchestra in 2011, and i've been happily playing percussion there ever since. before that, i studied at juilliard and played in the new world symphony in miami beach, florida.

since winning the met audition, i focused my energy on educating others on how to take auditions. through the auditionhacker academy, my goal is to help you get where you're going quicker and smarter than i did.

in this course, (which was super fun to create!) i'm breaking apart and detailing the entire step-by-step process for audition preparation that i used while i was in the new world symphony to win my audition in the MET.
