2012 is around the corner and with the new year 2012 will come many new auditions for singers of all ages.
Many kids see their idols like Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber on TV and want to be just like them. It’s no wonder, who wouldn’t want to be rich and famous doing what they love to do – Sing!
The biggest problem most kids have these days is finding auditions for singers within their age group. Yes, there are reality TV shows such as America’s Got Talent and American Idol that have given many their start, but getting onto those shows is not always easy and competition is beyond fierce. Not to mention that those shows may or may not be holding casting calls for singers or acts in your area. If you live in a small town or a rural state, you most likely will not be close to any of the audition locations.
So kids need to find singer auditions elsewhere – Community theater groups, community choirs, local schools and churches all hold auditions for singers and many do take kids into their groups.
Once you establish yourself in your local community, then you can start gaining a larger fan base.
These days, the best way to get noticed by record companies and producers is by already having a solid fan base. With the force of YouTube and many followers behind you, it will be much easier to get noticed. Don’t believe me? Well just ask Justin Bieber.
Basically, you can’t just sit around and hope to land an audition for some big name producer. You need to keep doing what you do which is sing, establish a fan base and work on gaining more and more fans by doing more and more shows.
This shouldn’t be about the money because most small groups such as church choirs will not pay you a dime, but you’ll gain experience and be able to hone your craft.
You can find auditions for singers in many places such as local newspapers, bulletin boards, your school and at local theaters. Many community theaters do shows through the year and have auditions a few times a year for parts in those shows. Late summer is also a great time to find the singing gigs for the Christmas shows that most theater groups and churches put on.
Remember, you have to start somewhere before hitting the big time because most large productions that employ many singers such as Broadway shows, will only hire experienced singers that have already proven themselves onstage in smaller productions.
