  • 35 Questions to Determine the Perfect Audition Song

    As we start 2015, I hope one of your New Year’s resolutions will be to recommit time and energy to making your career as fulfilling as possible. A great place to start is your audition book; I’m going to ask each of you to take a fresh look at the pieces you are singing and think about whether or not they are serving you well.  Below, I’ve listed the seven elements that I think are important when it comes to choosing the P.E.R.F.E.C.T. audition song. Underneath each of the seven terms, you will find five questions that you can ask yourself about your repertoire. If you feel satisfied with your answers to all or most of these questions, you are well on your way to having an audition book that you can be proud of.  If you are in need of further inspiration in terms of song choice, check out my repertoire lists here.
    P. is for Playable.

    Is this song too musically hard for a pianist who has never seen it before?
    Are there excessive tempo/meter/key changes?
    Is the copy I’m using legible?
    Are the chords or the bottom piano staffs cut off/not visible on the copy I’m using? 
    Is the musical information crystal-clear on the page (i.e. are my cuts marked correctly)?
