Audition Tips

1. Get a good night sleep before an audition!

Being well rested will increase your ability to concentrate, to assimilate, creativity and memory.

2. Sing more than just the words and the melody!

Put all you got into the song; your passion and yourself. Find a song that you connect with emotionally and Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeve. This can be one of themost difficult things for an artist to do, but make the effort to become vulnerable in a way that shows people how you really feel.

3. Be convincing!

Make your audience believe what youre saying by singing with conviction.
