Quick Tips for Instrumentalists Live Auditions

  • All instrumentalists are required to attend a live audition and the audition will last no more than five minutes in length.
  • All Musicians (except percussion) are required to prepare and perform a short piece of your own choice, without an accompanist.
  • Choose a work, or section of a work, which addresses the following points:

1. Clearly, demonstrate your technical proficiency
2. Emphasise your musicianship in your skill
3. Perform contrasting musical material (Create your own sound)

  • Knowledge of Music Theory basics is extremely an added advantage.
  • The audition panel may elect to hear only one part of your piece or they may ask you to play ZimPraise songs, solos or arrangement, so know ZimPraise music well.

Renowned mainstream artists such as Sabastian MagachaBlessing ShumbaMathias MhereMechanic ManyerukeComfort Manyame and Charles Charamba to name a few have all worked with Zimpraise. So now is the time for aspiring Gospel artists to take a giant leap into the mainstream and bring their music out of churches and onto the world stage.
