STEP 3:  Prepare for a live audition

HERE'S HOW YOU SHOULD PREPARE:


1) Attempt to play or sing the part as close as you can to the original recording that is listed under resources.  If you are unable to play the exact part you may simplify it.  It is always better to be simple and in time than complex and out of time.

2)  Instruments should attempt to match the tone of the recording as best as you are able (what effects were used and when).  Keyboard players should attempt to show a knowledge of various sounds if they have them (I.e. organ, synth, and piano).  

3)  Vocalists may feel free to choose a key that best fits their vocal range.  

4) Practice with a metronome or click track.  We play nearly everything with a click track and cues.

STEP 4: Contact us to let us know you are ready

Email Pastor Adam at adam.boylan@redemptionfw.org and let him know you are prepared and ready to audition.  He will schedule a date for you to come and audition with the worship team.

STEP 5: Come prepared to the audition


WHAT TO EXPECT

When you come in to audition you will play through/ sing your songs with members of the worship team.  There may be several people just sitting in the room listening to what is going on as well.  Once you have played through your songs expect that you may receive some feedback and /or some suggestions to try something a different way.  


WHAT YOU SHOULD BRING

  • Your music unless you have the songs memorized (which would be preferred but is not a requirement)
  • Your guitar and pedal board.  The church does not have those things for you to use.
  • A pair of ear buds.  We use only in ear monitoring and so in order for you to hear what you are playing and what others are playing you will need a pair of ear buds for the audition.
