Audition Tips for Singers

Part of the Singing For Dummies Cheat Sheet

The big tip to use on singing auditions is to know the typical behavior for your style of music. Pop-rock auditions are more laid-back than opera auditions. The way you dress for the opera audition is very different from how you dress at the pop-rock audition. Knowing these specifics increases your chances of getting the gig. This list highlights some tips to help you at auditions:

  • Choose songs that highlight your vocal strengths.

  • Pick stories you want to tell.

  • Prepare your music in a notebook so your songs are easy to locate. Or bring your recording to sing along with.

  • Polish your resume and print out your headshot to take to the audition.

  • Ask an accompanist to read through your song before your audition.

  • Choose your outfit wisely based on expectations for your type of audition.

  • Polish your acting skills.
