Examples of the 120 tips from the Ebook:

– Know everything from your song/aria/number/monologue: Where is it in the show? Who are you? What’s your purpose? What do you want to get done?

– Text and melody should be flawless and by heart. There should be an evolution in your piece, so the (musical) director can work with you.

– Prepare the route to the audition location. Rather an hour too early, than two minutes too late.

– You will spend a lot of time waiting for things to come. Save your energy. Don’t waste your time on chatting with everybody: your voice will get exhausted and you lose your energy. It’s not everyone’s desire to talk all the time with others. Respect that. Let them concentrate.

– Ill at the day of the audition? Voice rest: no talking! Especially no whispering, while the ‘wild air’ will dry out your vocal folds. Try humming or making light glissando’s on the ‘ng’ from ‘ing’ to sooth your voice.

– Never lie in your resumé: this can (and will) be used against you.

– Be prepared for questions as: “You may choose what number you want to sing”, or “Do you have something else than your prepared songs?”.

– Be flexible and cooperative. Try to follow the guidance of the jury precisely, so they see that they can work with you. This is especially true for auditions for a specific education. Don’t discuss.

– The accompanist is your biggest friend. This man/woman can save or destroy your audition. Take your time to explain what you want with your piece (style, tempo, cuts). Sheetmusic should be glued or in a folder/book.

– Don’t lock your knees in order to stand ready. You won’t feel your feet anymore, and you’ll “loose ground”.

– A rejection doesn’t say you don’t have talent. You may not ‘fit in the picture’ or the vision of a band or education. You can ask feedback if possible, and work on your points of improvement. Most proefessionals get more rejections then acceptations. It’s just ‘part of the job’.

These are a few of the tips I’ll give in the Ebook. Also I will be giving tips about singing techniques, clothing or “should I shake hands?”, and much, much more.

FAQ

No, I work with different methods. Through speechmethods like Coblenzer and Accent-method I work at your natural breathing. You’ll get a great knowledge of the anatomy and ‘how things work’ through the EVT-method. And Belcanto and classical methods will help you with a rich voicecolour, resonance and volume.

An individual lesson is 45 minutes of technical excercises and repertoire. The technical excercises are needed to train your muscle memory. Hereby you train lots of competencies, like placement of the tone, coloring, breathing and so on. All these parts will return in singing of the repetoire, so you can apply it. I’ll accompany you on piano (when the lesson is live). I’ve been playing for 40 years, so we will also work musically.

No, they’re not. Everything will be taught in a natural way, and we’ll look at what your specific voicetype is. Not every effect or ‘voice choice’ will work for you. But you will learn how to do it healthy, and then you can choose what you want to use in your singing. As long as you do it in a right technically way, there’s no harm.

Former students perform on the biggest stages in Europe, so my main  audience are professionals. I also give lessons and coach semi-professionals and graduated students from theatre studies. My feedback is of course very useful for auditioneers for art studies/ musicaltheatre studies. I have decades of experience with auditions for studies, so I know ‘what they ask’.
