kids audition songs teen music and lyrics

Learning Kids Broadway Songs should be an on-going process for Musical Theater Kids. You should anticipate that auditions will come up and begin to prepare even before they do. You will always find yourself ready to audition and will probably only need to brush up on a song or two without having to scramble.

Kids audition songs come in all styles and voice parts. If you are a kid who is auditioning for a show, it is a good idea to check to see what role(s) you may be able to play. Once you have determined which role you are going to audition for, look for a song that is suitable for the audition and learn to sing or, if you already know it, brush up on that song. It may help to work with a voice teacher or vocal coach, if possible.

Sometimes there is a children's chorus in a show. If you are auditioning to get into the chorus, become familiar with and, if time allows, learn to sing the songs for the chorus. Do not make yourself crazy about this, when auditioning for a chorus you are not expected to know every song.

Now that you're aware of the 2 audition hints above, I need to tell you to forget them. Why? because it's helps to know the music from a show, but it is not absolutely necessary. You should, however, at least be familiar with the music from the show. That said, lets' continue on.


You don't need to worry too much about whether you are the "type" that fits a particular role. You will probably be judged more on your singing voice than anything else. Every situation is different so use your best judgment in selecting an audition Song.

Keep in mind that you do not have to sing a song from the show for which you are auditioning unless, you have been specifically told to sing one. You may ask about this when setting up your audition appointment. The main objective, at a casting audition, is to demonstrate your vocal skills. The director has to be able to envision you in the part.

If you choose, on your own, to sing a song from the specific show for which you are auditioning, you may. However, it is perfectly acceptable to choose a song which is similar in style to the music from that show, again, unless you are told otherwise.

If you are comfortable with a song and know it well, it is probably better to sing that song, as you will be giving a better impression, to those casting, than if you sing a song you prepared last minute. Only you can determine how you can put your best foot forward.
