For those of you who have already submitted an application to join the worship band, there is a part 2 of the application process, which is a video audition. Our hope is that you will find this process as a great way to audition as opposed to a live, 1-on-1 audition. The benefit of a video audition is that can be done at your own pace, at a convenient time, and you have the benefit of doing multiple takes and then selecting the one that highlights your skill set. It’s a win-win-win for you!
You do not need to have professional equipment. Most phones now-a-days allow you to record video. We’re not looking for anything visually spectacular. We just want to know what you look like and how you sound playing with a band. You can also have the mp3 playing in the background so you know where you are, but just make sure to highlight your parts. Remember, we want to hear you! So, don’t get all hyped up about it not being the next in line for an academy award for “Best Visually Stunning Audition” or a studio quality recording. Just set it up, hit record, and play your heart out!
(Please note, if you are applying for multiple instruments, you will need to submit a video for each instrument)
Here’s what to include submit a video audition:
- 1 - 2 minute introduction of yourself
- Play two parts (verse & chorus, chorus & bridge, etc.) of a song of your choice
- Play two parts of a worship song of your choice
Here’s what we’re looking for:
- Skill level
- Comfortability in your craft
- Ability to play in time (with a click, or a metronome)
- Ability to play dynamically
- Heart for worship
Here’s how to submit a video:
- Upload your video via YouTube. Under privacy settings, select “unlisted” and title with “Your Name-CenterPoint Worship Audition”
- Email the link of your video to the Worship Pastor Brenton Laidler at Blaidler@centerpointutah.org
