Tips on Auditioning


  • Know your song by heart.
  • Practice in front of a mirror.
  • Record yourself and listen back on headphones.

The Audition:

  • Warm-up beforehand, drink some water, don’t forget to breathe!
  • Make it fun; smile a lot; you will feel the way you look!
  • Remember, it always sounds less energized than you think, so make sure your diction and rounded vowels are on top form.

Tips in general:

  • Always sing with expression – communicate, tell the story, explain the “emotion” intended.
    People connect to emotion.
    Don’t be scared to perform, use your body, use facial expression – a vocal coach once asked me:
    Would you rather look stupid or sound stupid? It’s a good question.
  • Singing and music is as much a discipline as a fun thing to do!
  • Work hard and play hard!
  • A good audition, like a good performance, comes from working at it beforehand.
  • A hidden truth behind all this is that the conductors really do want you to succeed; otherwise, they wouldn’t have bothered to tell you how
