AUDITIONS
The First Middleburg Worship Team is accepting all auditions for volunteer musicians via video submission. You can also schedule an in person audition time with Pastor Jonathan.
 
We will review your videos and follow up with you with the next steps in the process. If you play multiple instruments and want to audition with them all, we ask that you submit videos for each individually (this includes vocalists who also play instruments).
Should you have any questions during the audition process, or to schedule an in-person audition, please contact Pastor Jonathan.
 
Preparing for your Audition
 
We know some of these songs have a certain degree of difficulty to them. We are not expecting you to perform them perfectly. Please don’t get discouraged if you can’t get everything right. Doing your best will help us discern your current skill level.

Creating and Submitting Your Audition Video
 
  1. Rehearse. Prepare for your audition using materials provided in the audition resources package.
  2. Record. You can record on any device you wish (i.e., your smart phone, laptop, a camcorder). Record the video using the associated mp3 file for your audition. We understand the quality may not be the best but that’s ok! We are looking at three main areas: • Skill • Ability • Presence.
  3. Upload. Upload your video to YouTube. Under privacy settings, select “UNLISTED” and title with “Your Name – FBM Worship Team Audition”.          
  4. Submit. Once your video is uploaded to YouTube, fill out and submit the “Worship Auditions Form” below with the link to your video(s). Feel free to submit other videos of yourself as well.
