Learning to Perform a Song/Aria Workshop

We will all be performing in this class. Then afterward each performance we will talk about how to assess a performance constructively for further improvement while maintaining a positive and supportive self image and attitude.

We will be start with a brief warm up of BreathingRx For Singers techniques as if we are preparing before a performance. These warm ups will include: Freeing the body and diaphragm, jaw, tongue and throat release and diaphragm strengthening. I will also review a vocal focus exercise created by the Met Opera star Atarah Hazzan.

We are going to have a lot of fun and this workshop will be exciting and energizing. In this one we are limited to 8 so everyone can perform as they want. Please bring what you want to perform. It can be up to 2 songs or 7 minutes of performing time, (like an open mike venue). Bring what you need to perform, guitar, your music, chord chart, etc.

I will also talk briefly about nerves and energy for performing and how to interact with an audience, performance confidence and creating a safe, supportive space for yourself as a performer just before a performance.

See you at the workshop!

    Excellent class with great ideas and instruction regarding vocal preparatory exercises, habits to develop and ways to prepare for and enhance one's performing ability. Helpful supervised practice in class with individual attention and good discussions.

    Another excellent class led by Steven. Covered all the vocal warmup exercises in depth and spoke a lot about preparing to perform. I recommend this class to any singer at any level. Steven give lots of individual attention.
