Dean of 声乐艺术, Carleen 格雷厄姆, shares tips 而且 insights on auditioning at MSM!

Can you describe what an audition day looks like for applicants 而且 what will take place? 这个过程是怎样的?

Dr. 格雷厄姆: When you come into the building on the day of your audition, you want to give yourself plenty of time so that you’re not rushed. 当你到达时, 您将看到注册表的位置, 你会签到, 而且 you will be given an opportunity to use a practice room to warm up. Then, you’ll be given the location of the audition.

谁会参加试镜/面试?

Dr. 格雷厄姆: You will see a number of voice faculty members in the house listening to your audition. 由于日程安排,每天的时间可能会有所不同, 但你可以看到多达八到九个教职员工, or, 这取决于一天, 你可能会看到更少的.

在你试镜之后, you will have an opportunity to meet with me in small groups with other auditionees so that you can ask questions 而且 I can get to know you a little bit. I hope you’ll take advantage of that opportunity because I would really love to get to know you.

“You actually control the room for the 8 to 10 minutes that you’re in there, 这样你就能控制我们听你说话的方式. So come in, be yourself, 而且 don’t put on any airs. 是真实的.”

What advice can you offer for a successful MSM audition?

Dr. 格雷厄姆: I would say that the number one thing is that you want to sing what makes you feel good. You do have to show us what you’re capable of doing, but it also has to come from a song or an aria that allows you to shine 而且 that you feel your best at.

想想你想说什么. What does the repertoire that you pick tell us about you? You’ll want to sing pieces that help us learn about you very quickly. We have to make very fast decisions because we hear so many people each day, so make sure that what you prepare for us can show that very quickly.

If you have a piece that has a long introduction or interlude, 你可以考虑把头发剪掉. Say you have an aria that has 16 measures of introduction. Find a way to cut that introduction down to four measures because it saves time. Then, we can get right to listening to what you can do.

What should applicants keep in mind for the audition?

Dr. 格雷厄姆: You actually control the room for the 8 to 10 minutes that you’re in there, 这样你就能控制我们听你说话的方式. So come in, be yourself, 而且 don’t put on any airs. 是真实的. Look at us, say hello, 而且 be just open to what’s happening in the moment. The committee or someone in the room will ask you to introduce yourself 而且 tell them what you’re saying. 说话的时候要看着别人的眼睛.

Practice saying the titles of your arias or songs so that you can say them correctly — that’s really important. Make sure that you communicate well with the pianist 而且 thank them after you’re finished because they really are a key part of your audition experience. Think about the performance 而且 what you want to say.

On behalf of the 声乐艺术 department at Manhattan School of Music, we look forward to welcoming you 而且 wish you a wonderful audition!
