To best help you prepare your demo, please read the descriptions below of what we are listening for:
-Your ablility to sing and stay in tune
-Your ability to find and keep your part (alto/tenor). If you are singing alto/tenor you are required to submit a demo where we can hear you harmonizing with a melody with music.
-Your ability to play in time (keep tempo, not rushing or dragging)
-Your ability to figure out what you should be playing (comping). This is best demonstrated if you can submit a demo with you playing with a band or other instrumentalists.
-Your chord knowledge. (Submit something that would give us a good feel for your skills.)
-Your ability to keep time (most important skill)
-Your ability to play in control of your volume. (Dynamics)
-Your ability to know how to play what is appropriate in different parts of a song.
-Its best to submit more than one sample of your singing/playing so we can get a feel for how you would sing/play a fast/medium/and slow song.
