Our main focus as a worship team here at KRT is this: honoring God and helping people encounter him.
Hang tight while we prepare your form...
- Please be fully prepared for your audition, knowing your parts on all four required songs (above)
- We play from chord charts
- We are looking to know that you can learn your part from listening to a recording
- Don’t overplay – we don’t need you to shred, drum solo, or slap bass
- Be able to receive direction/criticism, even if you don’t agree with the suggestion
- Pay attention to your tone and pedals – delay and overdrive – making sure that they line up appropriately with the musical style of KRT. We don't use effects like chorus or flange
- Stick to lead or rhythm for the entire song – don't alternate
- Know how to use a capo
- Pay attention to strumming/picking patterns.
- Lock in with the drummer, paying attention to kick-snare pattern
- We will look to see that you know your patterns/parts even though you are auditioning without a drummer
- Lock in with the bassist, paying attention to kick-snare pattern
- We will look to see that you know your patterns, even if you are auditioning without a bassist
- You will play to a click track metronome
- Familiarize yourself with sounds other than piano (e.g., pad, organ, Rhodes, etc.)
- Think simple. Avoid overplaying, especially with the left hand
- Some songs have specific parts – know these parts rather than just chording
- In your audition, you will be expected to sing the lead vocal and harmony parts, staying on your respective part. If you are “hearing” a part that significantly varies from how we would sing it, we will demonstrate an altered part and ask you to modify. You will see that there are vocal tutorials for the songs, but please know lead melody and harmony parts for the entirety of each song
- Pay attention to timing and style of vocal movements on the recordings
- Keep vibrato to a minimum
- You will be auditioning to be a part of the ensemble
