There are two upcoming singing auditions here in Abilene; Abilene Idol and Outlaws and Legends Singer/Songwriter competitions. I thought it might be beneficial to post this video with some tips from a professional on how to prepare for an audition. 

Jayne Lybrand is the owner of The Image Factory. She is a vocal and stage presence coach offering seminars, private and online lessons and also has instructional CD's and DVD's available. She has worked with many artists in Nashville and other genres as well. Among her students are names like LeAnn Rimes, Miranda Lambert, Kacey Musgraves, Steve Holy, Terri Gibbs and many more.

Jayne offers tips like when introducing yourself to the judges say it proud and loud, pick a song that fits you, know the key you sing in and do so, practice..practice..practice, look the judges in the eye (not at the ground), and most of all HAVE FUN!!!

I hope these tips will help those of you with upcoming auditions and many of these tips can also be used if you have an upcoming job interview as well.
