Career Trajectories of the TSM Vocalist Program:
Even if students don’t feel confident, they have ready access to equipment to use for practise, and support from staff and fellow students to develop your skills and talents.
This is what has been found to lead to a successful debut and successful career in the industry with TMS alumni who have since become famous.
In particular, TSM organizes auditions in-house where many industry professionals attend. This provides students not only with real-world experience, but also the opportunity to become recognized. This leads to direct interviews and opportunities.
Leading up to this, TSM supports students with training for the audition and interview, so that students know what is needed for their debut, and know how to appeal to a wide range of people.
From them you will learn a wide variety of genres, techniques, performance styles, and perspectives.
Within the program, students receive interview and audition training sessions, portfolio building workshops, and real-life practicums.
Moreover, outside of the program, students have access to admin support for any concerns about their program or classes, as well as career counselling, where qualified staff guide you to find your way in the world as an artist.
