Participants should prepare two songs (only one may be worked on depending on time). Bring your audition book and headshot/resume if you have one.
Class is for adults only (over 21).
The workshop is called "Songs In Progress"™ because that is the lifelong journey of a Broadway performer... to constantly discover and refine the deeper meanings of songs and deliver them more successfully at auditions.
In the class, you will have a chance to work on your audition material, try new songs, get additional insight on old songs, and get professional advice on your vocal mechanic and the dramatic impact your performance is conveying.
During your work time, no questions are too simple or off-topic... what to sing for a specific audition, how to speak to a pianist, how to mark your music, what cuts to use of longer material, additional repertoire/role suggestions, and more. This is a supportive, safe environment for any performer needing to get feedback on their performance. Broadway, Off-Broadway, Equity and Non-Equity are all welcome.
Class limited to 15 performers.
