It takes proper preparation to present a solid audition.  Don't wake up the day of auditions and decide what to do. Take time now to choose your song, practice it, notate your music, and think about how you want to present yourself. Don't have a song?


We've provided a list of great song choices for boys, girls, and both. And if worse comes to worse, you can always sing "When You Wish Upon A Star" -- the sheet is provided.
