Maximize Your Potential
Maximizing your audition potential means developing a unique skill set, which includes everything from script reading, to interviewing, to choosing songs, to developing stage presence. We offer personalized coaching in all aspects of vocal and musical theater auditions, as well as a specialized program for prospective OCSA and APA students.
Prep Program – OCSA Audition Prep
Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA) in Santa Ana is one of the premier arts schools in the country. Competition is fierce, and to win a spot in your conservatory of choice means honing a masterful audition.
But here’s the thing—buckets of talent doesn’t always equate to an outstanding audition. Knowing what to expect, choosing the best material for your abilities, and taming stage fright are all factors that can make or break your chance to attend OCSA.
Get Ahead of the Competition
You may only get one chance in front of the panel, but we’ve had plenty—we routinely accompany our students at their auditions, so we see what goes on. Choose your package, and we’ll work with you to figure out what you need to do to put your best foot forward.
Audition Coaching for
Musicals and Competitions
Our job is to evaluate your strengths and weaknesses, bring your weaknesses up to speed, and make your strengths really sparkle. Each student and audition is unique, so sessions will vary dramatically. Audition coaching takes all or some of the following factors into consideration:
What to expect?Get Started
Vocal technique and development
If your audition is for a singing-heavy role, it’s in your best interest to train your voice as much as possible beforehand. We’ll look at the kind of part you’re interested in, and make sure your vocal style aligns with it.
Choosing, cutting, delivering the right song
In a situation where you get only one chance to shine, choosing the right song is as important as having good technique. We’ll help you cut it to the required length, and then work to make your song delivery irresistible.
Choosing, cutting, and delivering the right monologue
It’s rare that both a student’s song and monologue are of the same caliber. We’ll help you choose an appropriate monologue, and work with you to deliver it in a way that’s sincere and powerful.
Stage presence, stage fright management, and interview preparation
We’ll practice your overall demeanor in front of the judges. You’ll squelch stage fright and foster confidence.
An audition backing track
If you need someone to prepare a backing track to your exact specifications, we’re the ones to ask.
A Word From Our Founder
Many people mistakenly believe that you’re either born a singer or not. This is simply not true. There are so many coordinations that go into singing, from pitch matching, to breath support, to soft palate and tongue control. While these things may come easier and earlier to some than others, the bottom line is that they are skills that can be learned. If I can leave you with one piece of advice, it’s that you can learn to sing, and we’d love to be the ones to help you discover your voice.
