With Audacious Auditioning, you will gain the knowledge and tools that you need in order perform confidently and authentically so that you stand out from the crowd and win the job or position that you desire.

Tell me if this sounds like you:

You know that in order to reach your career or personal goals as a singer, you have to audition but you never feel like you are able to present yourself at your best in just a few minutes of singing. Because of that, the thought of auditioning paralyzes you.

What if I told you…

…that auditioning is an opportunity to perform and with the correct preparation and a shift in your mindset, you could walk out of every audition feeling totally confident that you did your absolute best?

That is exactly why I created Audacious Auditioning

If you are a singer who wants to perform in any capacity, especially if you are near the beginning of your career or performing goals, you need to embrace the fact that you are really a professional auditioner. If you want to achieve the success you desire, you must become comfortable with and even excited about auditioning.

In just a few hours….

….you will learn what the people behind the desk really want to see and hear, how to choose the right repertoire, and how to present yourself in the most authentic way so that you get noticed!

In Audacious Auditioning, you will learn…

The differences between auditioning for opera, musical theatre, competitions, choral groups, and more.

How to choose repertoire for your audition that shows you off and makes you stand out.

You’ve got questions!

So are you guaranteeing that I will get the job if I take this course?

Well, no! I am not the one in charge of hiring or admitting you into the program or group you are auditioning for. BUT, I am guaranteeing that if you follow the instruction in this course, you will gain a lot more confidence in your ability to audition effectively and maybe even start to enjoy the process more!

Where can I find auditions?

Depending on what genre you are in, there are lots of resources out there to find auditions. For opera singers, there are resourses like YAP Tracker and Classical Singer Magazine. For musical theatre singers, there is Backstage magazine. If you are looking for competitions or choral groups in your area, a simple Google search can help. And social media is also a great resource for auditions – there are many Facebook groups run by organizations or other singers that share audition notices.

I don't have a large music library. Where do I find music to audition with?

The internet is an amazing resource! Below is just a sampling of sites you can find free or low-cost music:

Do you offer private audition consultations?

Yes I do! I can help you choose repertoire, determine cuts for musical theatre auditions, and coach you on your performance. If you are interested in learning more about a private consultation (online or in person), send me an email at

Look what our students are saying!

I feel more confident in my abilities as a performer and I am sure the information I took from Audacious Auditioning is from someone with legitimate experience, devotion, and understanding of the aspirations her students have. Her advice is very insightful, and it comes from a place of passion. Do not think twice about taking these courses, because they are extremely worth it.

Fantastic information and I love how Dr. Zona describes everything you need to know thoroughly as possible. From what to wear, how to act properly with the song character, tips on how to get noticed more. This helped me prepare for my upcoming auditions. I didn’t know a lot of information on auditions before beginning this course. Now, this can help prepare me for the future and have a bit more insight on what to expect. I feel a bit more confident about going into auditions now with all the notes that I have taken after finishing the course.
