What to Prepare

Preparation is key:

Practice your song a cappella - there will be no piano or boombox to sing along.

Try singing your song for someone else - don't let the first time singing in front of someone be for the audition.

Know how to calm your nerves so you give your best performance possible.

Plan your audition time with at least a few moments to spare (if you have a class that ends at 3:30 - don't choose a 3:30 time slot :-) ).

What is the Audition Like?

 

The audition will consist of a:

Brief warm up/range check to see what your vocal range is

Brief verbal introduction of who you are and what you're like - nothing hard, we promise.

Chance for you to show off how well you sing (a cappella song)

Chance for you to ask any questions you might have

A few more keys to think about...

This group is lots of fun, but there will be a lot of hard work too. You will have to memorize music and practice outside of school to best prepare yourself for the end of the semester concert.

Also don't worry about the audition. Even trained musicians have audition jitters.
