For Vocal Levels 1 and 2, students will need to prepare to sing a 30-45 second song selection (1 chorus of a song) from a Disney musical or musical theater song. The song should be memorized and performed to a backing track that does not have the singer's voice. The student should have their lyrics or music in a binder and something to take notes with. Students are responsible for finding their own backing tracks.

For Vocal Level 3, students will need to prepare to sing a 60-75 second selection from a Disney musical or musical theater song. The songs should be memorized and performed to a backing track that does not have the singer's voice. All students should have their lyrics or music in a binder and something to take notes with. Students are also responsible for finding their own backing tracks.
