Dress the part: We recommend clothes you can move
in, closed toed shoes, a shirt that covers your tummy, and no
distracting jewelry. You want to show your personality, but still have
the focus be on YOU.
Before you sing: Introduce yourself
with confidence and a huge smile. State your full name and one thing about you. Keep it happy and bright. Definitely
practice this as part of your audition with lots of energy. One of our
best tips for auditions is to remember to “take a beat”. This
means, take at least 1 deep breath, position yourself, and then begin
Learn your lyrics: Practice, practice, practice! You have 30 seconds to
stand out. Reading lyrics from a paper makes it hard to express your personality. When the Audion Song is memorized, students are more confident in their audition.
Overall Smile, be confident, and be yourself. You learn something from every audition so the more you audition, the better you will become. Relax...and have fun!
