Bongo Star Search: Last Minute Singing Audition Tips

Don’t let your nerves get the better of you. Breathing just before you audition helps to blow away all the cobwebs and also helps to calm you down. The last thing you want is to be huffing and puffing in front of the judge. I know it can be quite nerve wrecking to sing when you’re being judged on your performance, all the more reason why you need to calm down in order to perform as flawlessly as possible. Here are a few breathing tips that may come in handy.

Before you go on to perform, take a deep breath in through the mouth to fill your abdominal area whilst gradually dropping the jaw like you do when you yawn. Count to eight on your way up and then close your mouth and hold your breath for another eight beats; and then release that breath in a controlled fashion with a hiss—and count to sixteen. It’s that simple. Do this several times. Oh, and remember, before each note, make sure you have enough breath—just breathe in like you did in the above example, only this time you breathe just before you hit the note. Don’t dither, don’t waste any time. Drink that breath, and then hit the note with a fresh breath. If you hang around holding the breath before you hit the note, something happens that somewhat causes your breath to deflate, and when that happens you will deliver a week note. It's inevitable. If you’re auditioning at Bongo Star Search this week, stay cool and remember to breathe. Your vocal delivery depends on it. Best of luck!
