The first step in auditioning for Worship Central Academy is to submit a video recording of your audition. This can be as simple as recorded through your phone, or as complex as using a recording device/computer. Whatever the case, the most important thing is that your playing/singing is easily discernable. Also, make sure the quality of the recording is acceptable (again, it should be easy to hear what you’re playing/singing). You may need to do several “takes” to get a good recording/balance.
You will need to play the recording of the song through headphones or speakers so you can hear what you’re playing with/to. If possible, having the reference song playing audibly in the recording with you is ideal, but not a requirement. If you are unable to do this, just your instrument/voice with headphones will work. The main point is that YOU can be heard clearly in the recording.
The point of this form of audition is to give Worship Central Academy staff an initial read on your ability as a musician/vocalist. We totally understand that these recordings will be rough – so don’t worry about quality – we get it.
Please submit a total of two videos.
You will need to purchase the song from iTunes or other method in order to use in the recording: (click on a song to view in iTunes)Please submit only one song per submission type.
