Scoring Criteria
  • Character development/ Consistency

  • Delivery/Style

  • Emotional Commitment/ Believability

  • Pitch/Intonation

  • Staging/Choreography

  • Vocal Production/Technique



Vocal technique goes without saying.  You have to be able to produce it cleanly and accurately.  What most singers miss though, is that there's a character and story to your song.


Read (or watch) the entire piece.  See at what point in your character's story-life the song is taking place.  Then, figure out what the song is saying about him/her, and (acting-wise) the most important question : what is motivating your character to sing right now?  What is it that he/she wants, but doesn't already have?  This is the center of your piece.


Find a friendly Chorus teacher or vocal coach to help you through the music.  Sing from the diaphragm and know what parts of your song are meant to just lift up and SOAR.
