FAQ About Auditions: 

  • When are auditions, and how do I sign up?

Belle Tones scouts out baby belles during the first two weeks of every school year. Sign ups will be posted on this page.

  • I've been classically trained since birth, I've won multiple riff offs against Mariah Carey, and I beatbox for Kanye West in my spare time. Should I audition for Belle Tones?

Yes. We love you. 

  • I've never been in choir or taken voice lessons, but my shower head thinks I have some serious talent. Should I audition for Belle Tones?

Absolutely. We love you too. 

  • Do I need to prepare something to sing? What song should I choose?

Part of your audition will include a prepared a cappella solo. Choose a verse and a chorus of a song that you feel comfortable singing that showcases your range and vocal abilities. The song can be anything from Amazing Grace to Beyoncé- we just want to see what you can do!

  • What else will I be asked to do in my audition?

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your audition to fill out an audition form with information about how to contact you, your past musical experience, availability, etc. The audition itself will last about 10 minutes. During that time, you will sing your prepared solo, do a short sight reading exercise, and go through some musical exercises.
