Audition Master Classes

Audition Classes with Children's Musical Theater San Jose

The Ultimate Audition Training

Spend an afternoon with some of CMT's most talented guest and resident teaching artists and directors. Learn about the audition process, how to perfect an audition song, how to make the most of a cold reading, and how to stand out during a dance audition. All participants will take part in a mock audition and receive personal feedback from instructors. Audition Master Classes are held prior to the fall and summer productions.
