Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

    At my school we are doing the production of The Addams Family Musical and as I am taking GCSE Drama I have been encouraged to audition for a main role, something I would really love to do. However, I am a terrible singer; I never sing in a good pitch and as soon as I get nervous or stretch for a higher note my voice breaks/wobbles. Any tips on how to improve my singing voice, so that I don't embarrass myself at this audition, or how to sing the song Pulled from the Addams Family would be greatly appreciated.

    And I am aware that fast is spelt wrong in the title - it's because of my dodgy keyboard and me constantly rushing! 😂😂

    I picked GCSE Drama too! We recently did a school musical which obviously I had to sing for the audition however I have lessons so it wasn't to bad.
    I would recommend finding your comfortable voal range and then making sure your audition sing is within that range. Do you get to pick a song or are you given it for the audition?
    And find some warm ups on YouTube or just hum up and down a scale and then sing up and down a scale. If you have a piano or keyboard to hand, either at home or school, try to play the note when you sing it so it will help you find your pitch.
    And last but certainly not least, PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE! Because even though I have singing lessons if I don't practice I can hear quite clearly I am not as good as I could be.
    The more you practice the easier your voice finds the notes to sing so the better and smoother it will sound.
    Good Luck on your audition and I'm sure you will smash it!

    thanks for the tips. The audition is tomorrow and I'm definitely going to practice with a piano to help with my pitch. I'll tell you how it went when we get told our parts.
