DRAMA SCHOOL AUDITION PREPARATION

Applying for drama schools is an exciting adventure, that can be incredibly nerve wracking at times. Finding the institutions that best fit your career goals, what course to apply for, how to apply and how best to maximise your chances of having a successful audition can be an overwhelming minefield of questions. As well as all those perfectly normal concerns, due to the current government restrictions thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, many Performing Arts colleges are unable to hold in-person auditions, and are instead asking for “self tape” auditions - a filmed audition that can cause anxiety for even the most seasoned professional.

Alex offers private sessions for students looking to apply to study at any Performing Arts college, around the UK. After an initial consultation via Zoom, with Alex’s guidance, students will work on the following four key elements in 1-to-1 online sessions, tailor made to the students’ requirements.

 

1. WHERE TO APPLY & HOW TO APPLY

Knowing which Performing Arts college best fits your career ambitions can be tough. Some offer accredited degree courses, whilst others offer their own diploma. Some have a heavier focus on one particular discipline, whilst others provide a more rounded training on all disciplines. Having a clear understanding of what each institution offers, what they expect & require from you as a student, but most importantly, what YOU want from YOUR professional training is essential information when narrowing down your list of where to apply. Each college has its own application process that may differ from other institutions, so paying close attention to what is required at each stage of the application process is important for maximising chances of success.  

 

2. FINDING THE RIGHT AUDITION MATERIAL 

Finding the perfect songs to sing for auditions can be a nightmare. And if finding the right song wasn’t already stressful enough, finding monologues for auditions can be even more of a nightmare. Alex will help you to find audition material that is right for YOU, including helping to source sheet music or backing tracks that are in the right key, making sure it is age appropriate and edited to be the correct length for auditions. Choosing the right material that best showcases your talents is the first weapon in your audition arsenal, and is crucial for your confidence. 

 

3. WORKING ON THE MATERIAL

During the sessions, We will work on text interpretation, song presentation and audition technique in order to get the best performance out of you. Feeling well prepared and confident in what you offer to an audition panel is imperative, and together we will aim to build a well-rounded, detailed performance that you can feel proud of as you enter the exciting world of Performing Arts colleges.

 

4. FILMING THE SELF TAPE

Filming a great self tape can be difficult, time consuming and hard on your confidence if you’re not used to doing it. Finding the perfect location with the correct acoustics can be troublesome, as well as knowing how best to film the material without the resources and budgets of a Hollywood movie. As a professional Actor, Alex is used to regularly filming self tapes, and will be on hand to talk you through the process offering tips and tricks to help you produce a top-quality, industry standard audition tape to send off to respective colleges.

PRICES 

Each session will be 60 minutes long. Back to back sessions may be possible, subject to availability.

 

1 session - £25

5 sessions - £100 (Buy 4 - get one free!)
