Performing Arts/ Music Audition Clinics

If you’re interested in applying for Level 2 and Level 3 Performing Arts courses, this is the perfect opportunity to get an idea of what the audition and interview process at HCA will be like. You will find out what to expect, what we are looking for in a candidate, get some tips and hints that will help you have a positive audition experience.

In preparation, it would be helpful to bring the speech, dance piece or song you are interested in presenting at audition. You can attend more than one audition clinic if you like.
