AFD Vocal & Performance Coaching encourage students of all abilities to take part in as many singing and performance events across the North East as they can. Taking part in events such as; open mics, singing competitions, performance opportunities, castings/auditions, examinations etc. Our teachers actively search for events for students to take part in and many students enjoy working towards performance events in their 1-2-1 and group singing lessons. We also welcome further suggestions from students, whether it be a small open mic or a big casting/audition.
Not at all! Lessons are tailored to each individual student. Come along to a free 1-2-1 taster session and one of our teachers can discuss your needs. Book your free taster lesson now.
Of course. Open mics are a perfect opportunity for shy and anxious performers to build their confidence. Most open mic events are in a relaxed setting where you will sing 2/3 songs alongside many other people who love singing just like you! Open mics are a fun way to express your love for singing while spending time with family and friends as they watch you perform.
Yes. Our teachers have lots of experience in audition preparation. Teachers will discuss with you exactly what your requirements are. Whether it’s a small local audition or a big production casting AFD Vocal & Performance Coaching can meet your needs.
You do not have to perform on your own. Students are more that welcome to take part in events with friends! Performance opportunities are a great way to have fun with friends whilst learning valuable skills such as; team work, timing, harmony, dynamic etc.
Open mics are usually a free event. Some competitions may have a small fee which are usually under £20. It all depends on the type of event. As a rule, competitions usually have a small application fee and open mics are free. If you decide to do gigs, you may even make a bit of cash.
No. You should never pay to attend an audition unless it is for a competition. We would advise to stay clear of auditions asking for a fee as it could be a scam. A legitimate casting/audition would never ask for a fee.
