Audition tips & reminders
You MUST have sheet music for your audition song. It should be in the correct key for your voice and include the piano part.
If you don't have music, see if your friends do. Libraries also have some sheet music. Book stores (like Half Price Books, Barnes & Noble, etc.) carry some songbooks. Online sources like MusicNotes.com or SheetMusicPlus allow you to buy sheet music to print out. (It is not free, so talk to your parents first!)
SONG SELECTION REMINDERS
DO NOT FORGET TO PRINT AND COMPLETELY FILL OUT (with signatures) YOUR AUDITION FORMS.
The actual pages of music should be in a binder or displayable in a way that makes it easy for the accompanist.
If it's in a book, make a copy of only the pages you need.
You should be prepared to sing 16-32 measures of the song.
Please clearly mark in the music where the selection starts and where it ends.
Dress comfortably but appropriately.
Practice your introduction when you practice your song. It should go something like this:
"Hello my name is [YOUR NAME]. I am a [YOUR GRADE] and today I will be singing a selection from [YOUR SONG TITLE] from [TITLE OF THE SHOW IT IS FROM]."
