Live audition 
In judging the audition for the main subject of Vocals, we are looking for talent, creativity, personality and educability. Having a vision (on who you are, where you want to go and how will you get there) is highly valued as well. Furthermore, a good motivation for choosing this study programme will also be appreciated. For your audition you will have to prepare 3 songs; preferably three recent ones of your own, but if you choose to do one or more covers, make sure to make them your ‘own’. We’re not looking for copycats! 

  • Playing with your own band is preferred.

We will also check your vocal range for different sound colours and your harmony skills: are you able to harmonize a certain melody on the spot? 

  • Knowledge of basic music-theory and sight-reading 
  • Good musical ear 
  • Reasonable command of a harmonic instrument (piano/guitar) 
  • Good command of the Dutch language (only applies to Dutch-speaking students) and the English language 
  • Vision on music and your future within the field 
  • Being able to work at a basic level with a sequence programme, and owning a laptop with a DAW programme 
  • Good energy and charisma on the stage 
  • The result of the theory test will be taken into consideration in the judgement
