The virtual audition is upon us this season. The number one audition concern I’ve heard from students this season is “What if I don’t do as well on camera as I would in person?”
Here are 5 tips to help you overcome those fears.
1.Be more than prepared with your audition material. Have your songs and monologues performance ready, NOT JUST BARELY memorized. All pieces should be ready to perform if asked.
2.Have your music cued up and your bluetooth speaker ready
3.Have your Zoom Room/audition space clean ready for your auditions. If you’re using a backdrop, it should be ironed or steamed. If you are in your room, be sure it is CLEAN and not cluttered. Try to limit noise. I realize it is challenging but any additional noise may be distracting.
4.Headphones will help. I recommend investing in wireless headphones like airpods, game changer!
5.Do your research on the schools for which you’re auditioning and the people for whom you’re auditioning before you meet them! Super important. It will make you feel more comfortable and also give you information on who they are and what they do!
Breathe and be yourself. Sounds simple but so true. Be yourself.
