Submit a mock violin orchestra audition video and get personalised critique from a renowned orchestra leader/concertmaster

Ioma Pro Payment

Why do I need IOMA Pro?

The most important aspect in audition preparation is taking part in auditions. At first we don't do as well as we can because of a lack of experience, but if you don't have enough experience "on paper", you might be likely not to be invited to audition in the first place.

How to break the vicious circle?

With IOMA Pro, you will always be ready for your dream audition. We offer mentoring by renowned leaders, support with audition preparation, applications, and more.

You can also use your achievements with us for your CV. 


Savva Zverev
IOMA Director
Sub-Principal Second Violin,
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra

When I graduated, I had no idea what skills or experience were required to play with orchestras as an extra, let alone get a job. Failure after failure, some 50 applications and 20 auditions down the line, I started getting trials. Through trial and error, at 23, I got my job. 

My journey inspired me to create this platform which offers all one needs to work in the industry, and connects you with top musicians, whether you are a student or a recent graduate.
