Overcoming audition nerves can be one of the most difficult things to do, here are some tips to help you succeed at your next audition. Drink a lot of water and get a good night’s sleep the day before; you will both sound and feel better when you are hydrated and well rested. Next, practice your audition song and monologue in front of a mirror and even for family and friends, if you feel comfortable enough. This helps you become more aware of how you are coming across to the audience and gives you practice performing the pieces for a live audience. Also, when selecting your audition pieces, be sure that they are the proper age and vocal range for both you and the character you are auditioning for. Additionally, every audition is a little bit different, so be sure to read the audition criteria thoroughly and follow it precisely. Lastly, take several deep breaths before you go on and remember to have fun.
