When you are auditioning, you have a very limited amount of time to make an impression.

In 10 minutes or 16 bars (!), you have to:

  • Show who you are
  • Show that you can sing
  • Show that you can communicate a character

In this excerpt from Audacious Auditioning, I give you some tips on how to effectively communicate a character in an audition situation.
