Audition Videos

For musicians, actors and dancers applying to college, a top quality audition video is absolutely critical. Noah Manheimer at Enchanted Garden Productions has been specializing in audition videos for over a decade. The studio features a beautiful Baldwin grand piano with the revolutionary Earthworks PM40 microphone system, professional recording and video equipment, and stellar acoustics. We recognize that the audition process can put a great deal of pressure on the student. Our goal is to create a comfortable and focused environment where the student can deliver his or her best performance.


Q: Should the student’s teacher attend the session?
A: It is recommended that the teacher attend the recording session if possible. The teacher will not only provide invaluable coaching during the session, her/his presence will help the student feel more comfortable and supported.

Q: Do we provide the accompanist or do you?
A: If you are not currently working with an accompanist, we are happy to email you a list of recommended pianists. It is advisable to schedule a rehearsal with the accompanist prior to the studio date.

Q: What is the turnaround time?
A: We will complete post production and email you a link to your video within one week of the recording session. Expedited delivery available for additional cost.

Q: What format will my video or audio track be delivered in?
A: Whatever the program you are applying to requires. In most cases, the online application material will require you to upload the video. If that is the case, we will deliver the video to you via Dropbox, and you will follow the application’s upload instructions.  If the school has specific instructions such as duration or file size limit, please pass them along to us prior to the session so we can plan accordingly.

Q: What is the cost?
A: The flat rate for most audition recordings is $495 which covers a single camera studio shoot of up to 2 hours, audio mixing, video editing and delivery. Some factors such as a more elaborate recording/shoot, on-location shoot, or expedited delivery may incur additional cost.
