Philippa Poulton - Singing Teacher - preparing for auditions



Audition preparation is something that I really enjoy. Whether the audition is for a specific role/part or for entry into music conservatoire/drama school, I love to help students prepare for important milestones in their career.

Preparation will include researching the event, choosing, planning, learning and physicalising the repertoire. This process can sometimes be quite complicated and can take months of preparation.
When auditioning for post graduate study at conservatoires, the repertoire needed can be extensive and it is a requirement to sing in at least 3 languages. Planning mock auditions and mini recitals, well in advance of the audition date works brilliantly as preparation for this and can help substantially with performance anxiety. When the student is preparing for an important audition, where certain factors are unfamiliar, it is really important to plan what one is able to control.
During the last year, out of the three of my students who auditioned for professional study, one was offered scholarship places in 2 conservatoires, and the other 2 were offered places to study Musical Theatre in every drama school for whom they auditioned.
