Join us for a free Audition Workshop on Sunday, October 29th, from 12:00pm to 2:00pm.
The workshop will be held at the studio 100 Shaw Drive, San Anselmo.

At this workshop we will be covering all the audition basics:

  • How to walk in
  • What song to sing
  • How to prepare music
  • How to format a resume
  • How to dress
  • Tips for a successful audition

This free workshop is a GREAT opportunity for beginning performers to learn the basics from professionals, and a great opportunity for experienced performers to brush up on their skills. 

Bay Area professionals, Lauren Brody-Clarke, Bidalia E. Albanese, Maria Elena Cacciatore, and Daniel Savio, will not just tell you, they will SHOW you, what a solid audition looks like. Then you will have the opportunity to try out some of the skills discussed right there at the workshop. Bring a favorite audition song to work on, and bring your audition game to a whole new level!
