Understanding the Process: Organizing Your Auditions
Understanding the college process can be daunting and overwhelming. In this hour and a half discussion based workshop, PAA staff will help you begin the process in a clear and organized way. We will provide resources to get your research started, answer questions like how to narrow down your school choices, the differences in degrees, and how to pick audition material. We will help you start researching schools and build a timeline to ensure you get everything completed and turned in with less stress! We will also have some current seniors who can share their journey with you. Whether you are starting to explore college options or already have your top schools picked, let us help you take the mystery and stress out of the process! Open to current sophomores, and juniors. Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Selecting Your Best Material
The April 16th session:
Will break down different college requirements. Many schools participate in the Common Prescreens which helps to narrow down your material. Generally, you will need a contemporary song (post 1970) and monologue (post 1900) and a traditional song (pre 1970) and monologue (pre 1900). We will help you avoid overdone works, pick songs best suited for your voice, help select cuts of music, provide resources to research material, and discuss how your audition should be filmed.
This second workshop sessions are for students to come back with specific ideas for songs and monologues and get feedback so you can narrow down your pieces before summer. This follow up will be a half hour one on one with PAA staff. In the fall, we will offer specific coaching and mock auditions once your material is on its feet!
*This workshop is open to current sophomores and juniors.
