As my D works with her teacher to build her repertoire list, I thought it might be a good time to pose this question: What are your top 3 audition tips/considerations when it comes to choosing which songs to have in your repertoire and, more important, which songs to pull out of the bag on audition day. Bonus points if you consider the fact that my D is focused on contemporary/commercial voice programs.
"Age appropriate" is a given, as is being aware of a school's "do not sing" lists. So what other 3 top tips do you have to share?
Total aside, D loves Regina Spektor - would a song like "laughing with" be inappropriate for auditions?
