ONLINE PERFORMANCE WORKSHOPS

NEW CLASSES START SEPTEMBER 14th 2020

Times are clearly uncertain, so more than ever I want to keep in touch, stay involved and not lose hope. I don’t know a better way to stay engaged than to sing and to continue our musical work. To really take advantage of this time - this insisted upon “time out”- to dig deep and expand our musical horizons. There are no show dates, no post cards, no costumes to worry about, just simply the work.  We need to hold our feet to the fire and continue doing the work. The wonderful, exciting work. 

 

At first I did not want to teach virtually…. it was foreign, distant, clinical... TECHNICAL... the opposite of an intimate cabaret experience. It felt gratuitous trying to proceed as though we had something to work towards with no realistic idea as to when the clubs might open again. I didn’t want to do it.  But I have been doing it. And I am loving it!

Ideally you will need a USB mic (Blue Yeti is great), headphones and tracks/arrangements (Mp3's you have downloaded to your cpu) Not prefabricated karaoke tracks! If you do not have anything let me know and I will help you hook up with talented folks to start that part of your musical journey.

Both revisiting old songs (tracks) and trying new things are welcome.

Most of you who will want to join us already have some great stuff to work with and on. 

 

You will have to be able to join us on Zoom and a computer (vs an iphone or ipad) are the best way to do all of this with the mic.

 

Because of how we are doing music now (virtually) it will be nice to bring you all (from all over) together (again) and in different configurations as we expand our community and eventual opportunities :)

 

We are not to get discouraged. I have been teaching since mid April and I am truly surprised and how much "behind the scenes" work we can and are doing and to have these Visiting Teachers join us up close and personal this way is a lot easier then flying them all to NYC! :) 

The only thing I have asked of them is to wear pants.

I cant wait to work with them and you. Contact me about class price and spots/days still available asap.
