Singing Auditions for Kids in North Andover: Preparation
Hire a Vocal Instructor. A vocal teacher will help you choose songs that promote your skill. He/she can teach you methods to advance the quality of your voice. He/she will also provide you with exercises to practice that can dramatically improve intonation, sound strength, and range. Singing auditions for kids in North Andover have some different requirements. A singing instructor will give you the support you need to prepare for all of them.
Know what you’re auditioning for. Know what kind of show, venue, or competition you are auditioning for. Choose a song style that fits the event. If there are no requirements, use your strengths.
Solo or group? Are you going to be singing in a choir or by yourself? It makes a significant difference. Having the ability to carry your part in harmony with others is different than singing solo. Singing auditions for kids in North Andover might request you to do both or just one.
Allow your voice to rest. The voice gets tired extremely rapidly if you’re not accustomed to continuous singing. Avoid any strenuous activities that require you to raise your voice, such as cheering at a concert or outside events that require you to yell over far distances. Ensure you get sufficient sleep the night before your audition. This will help your voice to rest.
Day of the Audition: 7 Tips
1. CHOOSE MUSIC NOT OUTSIDE YOUR ABILITY. There is a tendency to perform a song for an audition that “shows off” your talent. Singing auditions for kids in North Andover are not usually about finding a kid who already has superstar talent. They are usually for finding someone with general singing skills that can meet the specific needs of the production. Select music that features your strengths, but aren’t so difficult that you risk failing the audition completely.
2. SELECT AN APPROPRIATE GENRE. Select a piece of music that is appropriate to the audition. If you are auditioning for a hip hop commercial, don’t choose a blues song for the audition.
3. AVOID OBSCENITIES. Don’t use a song with cussing or potentially inappropriate material. The last thing you need is to disrespect the judges/staff. Singing auditions for kids in North Andover normally focus on wholesome family material. Select music that is challenging but has a positive message.
4. WARM UP THE VOICE. Warm up your voice before you enter the audition premises. Unless otherwise instructed, you shouldn’t expect to be allowed to warm up. Do them in the car on the way, at home, or in the hotel. Just because you’re going to singing auditions for kids in North Andover, doesn’t mean they won’t be difficult. Warming up your voice is always recommended when performing.
5. PLAN OUT THE WHOLE AUDITION. Before you ever walk into the audition location, prepare what you’re going to do. You may not know exactly what the judges expect, but you do know what you want to accomplish. Plan how you are going to walk out, how you’ll adjust| the microphone, how you will address the director, how you will describe the song and the reason you selected it.
6. MINIMIZE PHYSICAL MOVEMENT. Unless otherwise directed to include dancing with the music, avoid too much movement while performing. Singing auditions for kids in North Andover don’t typically require too much on-stage movement. Don’t wander around and only use hand movements that are natural and part of the song (e.g., pointing to yourself when singing the words “we” or “me”.
7. DON’T APOLOGIZE AND BE CONFIDENT. It may appear to be the polite thing to do when you err, but don’t apologize. Judges want someone with confidence. When you say things like, “I wasn’t in my best voice today” or, “Sorry, I’m not warmed up enough,” it shows that you weren’t properly prepared. Be confident in yourself and your abilities. Get prepared prior to the audition. If you make a mistake, don’t stop the performance. Do your best, and don’t look back!
