Duluth, Georgia -
Atlanta Institute of Music and Media (AIMM), an accredited music college from Atlanta that offers various music degrees and certificates, has released a guide that novice singers who are preparing for a singing audition can learn from.
A spokesperson for AIMM talks about the article offering the best vocal audition tips for singers by saying, “We are always publishing new and interesting content to help those who want to enter the music industry. Regardless of the path you want to take to make it big, the learning never stops. Whether you want to be a producer, instrumentalist, or singer, there is always a new challenge to overcome and a new milestone to accomplish. With this latest blog post, we are focusing on vocalists who want to prepare for a vocal audition. This could be a local or national singing competition, musical audition, or even auditioning for a music school like AIMM. The new blog provides tips for music auditions, the mindset to attack the audition with, and even suggestions for recorded virtual auditions. We urge you to go through the article yourself. It will give you a leg up if you are currently in the process of auditioning. If you are still in the early stages of your musical journey, consider learning more about AIMM and how we can help your dreams come true.”
The blog post begins by acknowledging that auditioning can be a stressful experience as a lot is riding on it. It is natural to get nervous and, consequently, to deliver a performance that doesn’t fully match one’s capabilities. To ease this harrowing experience, the article recommends a few techniques to strengthen one’s mindset.
The article says that singers should choose a song that they are comfortable with and well-versed in. It doesn’t necessarily have to be easy or trivial to sing but the singer should be familiar with its intricacies to be able to nail every note. Singers should also take care of their voice which is their primary “instrument” by doing proper vocal warm-ups, singing from the diaphragm, resting the voice, performing breathing exercises, and staying hydrated before the audition.
It is also important to know what kind of gig or talent show one is auditioning for. It helps to ask oneself questions about the event such as what talents and vibe the audition organizers are looking for, what is the next step after the audition, how many songs need to be prepared, do they emphasize the musical skills, vocal, singing skills, styles, or the characteristics and the appearance of the singer, and more.
Once all details about the auditions are ascertained, it is time for the positive pep talk to motivate oneself to put the best foot forward when standing on the audition stage. The music industry is very competitive, and self-belief is an important quality to survive the challenges it can pose. The audition is destined to be a stepping-stone and believing in oneself is just the first hurdle to clear to have a long career in the music industry.
The article then asks the performers to maintain a compelling stage presence that can make the audience root for them. The more engaging the performance, the more likely the judges will pick the candidate. It is also recommended to dress according to the aesthetic expected by the event. After the performance is over, regardless of the result, the singers should always thank the judges for the opportunity professionally and courteously. Finally, the blog post also offers some tips for virtual auditions such as ensuring proper audio quality, correct framing within the audition video, appropriate lighting, and a pleasing backdrop.
Recently, the Atlanta music school launched another blog post titled AIMM's Ultimate Guide to Singing that gives tips for aspiring singers to improve their vocal chops.
