A few tips on auditioning for singers

Preparation:

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 ;-)
