Singer Songwriter Audition

Your audition is a way of you showing us what you can do- not us highlighting what you cannot do yet! Please prepare accordingly and try not to let nerves get in the way of your performance.

The tutor taking you through your audition will ask you to demonstrate knowledge and skill from the following areas:

  • Vocals: warm-up exercises including major and minor scales, breathing exercises, projection, long-note dynamic build.
  • Guitar or keyboard chords: Basic chord shapes of major and minor chords, plus some 4 note chords (eg ‘7’ ‘maj7’ ‘min7’)
  • Own choice piece: Please prepare one original piece to perform which showcases your songwriting techniques. This piece can be as simple as you want it to be, but should show that you can structure a song with at least verse and chorus sections.

You will be expected to bring your own guitar (if applicable), but an amp will be provided. An electric stage piano is available for pianists.

Good luck, and have fun preparing
