Imagine how brilliantly you could sing if you could get out of your head and into the music. Here’s your chance to practice this in-the-moment approach to performing in an atmosphere of friendly collaboration and non-judgment. Join me for Mastering the Art of Vocal Performance (MAVP)!
The cost per class is $30/week.
This weekly master class is the perfect venue for singers to practice a mindful approach to their art based in the learnable skill of non-judgmental Constructive Listening. You are welcome to bring any piece of music you’d like to sing for the group—to help you prepare for an upcoming audition or performance or just for the joy of it.
During each class, I create a supportive, non-critical atmosphere in which you will easily access your brilliance in all aspects of performance:
▪ vocal technique
▪ musical and dramatic interpretation
▪ stage presence
You will discover that singing music in public can be easy and FUN!
Who are these classes for?
▪ Singers of all genres and all levels from beginner to professional
▪ Anyone who is interested in watching me coach singers
▪ Anyone who wants to learn about getting into the current moment through Constructive Listening
Do you provide piano accompaniment?
Yes: a professional pianist will be on hand. If you’d like accompaniment, please bring sheet music (2 copies in your chosen key).
