Audition Preparation Weekend
Are you a singer preparing to audition for a Music College or University, or perhaps you have your final graduation recital or first professional auditions coming up? Spend a weekend working with opera director Saffron van Zwanenberg and vocal coach Audrey Hyland, both experienced at sitting on audition panels and helping people prepare for auditions.
You will hone your pieces and learn practical tips to enable you to cope with nerves and what to do when things don’t go to plan. Then test your improvement in a mock audition at the end of the course to give yourself the best possible chance of performing the way you want on the big day!
All courses are held at Jackdaws in the village of Great Elm, a small village to the west of Frome in Somerset, roughly 30 minutes drive from Bath. Frome Train station is roughly 2.5 miles from Jackdaws with direct trains from Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and London.
A £50 deposit is required to guarantee your place on a course. The total course fee is inclusive of all meals and tuition except breakfast, which is included in the separate B&B price. Please let us know of any dietary requirements at the time of booking and we will be happy to accommodate. Meals are lovingly prepared on site by our cooks using fresh, local ingredients where possible.
B&B rooms are located in friendly family homes and are either within walking distance or a short drive away (5 – 10 minutes). Breakfast is the only meal served at the accommodation; all other meals are provided on site at Jackdaws.
