The Ultimate Audition Guide: Students

Written by Lindsay Price

 You may be familiar with our The Ultimate Audition Guide: Teachers – did you know we have a student version?

Students go through the same set of emotions, issues and concerns when auditioning:

  • Will I get the part?
  • What if I don’t even get cast?
  • What if I forget the words?
  • How do I stop being so nervous?

The Ultimate Audition Guide: Students takes you through activities and exercises you can give students to prepare them for the task of auditioning for a show, program, or class.

Auditions don’t have to be nerve wracking experiences! Coach your students to prepare themselves to give their best piece ever.
