Prepare for Your Berklee College of Music Audition 2017-2018 with Alumni Instructors
As the new school year greets us, some may find themselves excited and ready to embark on new musicals paths! As it happens, most of the auditions for one of the world’s most prestigious music school, Berklee College of Music are to be scheduled November 2017 - March 2018.
It is absolutely important for a prospective student to prepare as best as possible in order to get positive results. Our popular Berklee alumna and faculty (Berklee Day Sessions) Yonit Spiegelman shared a few thoughts about her lessons of Berklee Audition prep:
I have students who had been creating, playing and living music for 10+ years and they’re amazing - but some of them just don’t know how to show all of that in 5 short minutes of performance! In our lessons we create a unique performance using all their talent and hard work in order to showcase their musicality best in the audition. And that’s on top of all the rest of the elements that need to be worked on in order to get there!
Yonit says the best results come from three to six months of previous preparation, and as a result has had success with many students accepted as well as some receiving varied scholarships. Nonetheless, even one lesson before your audition can make a difference.
