Performance


In this workshop, we will put our singing technique into the emotional application in our singing. We will address every vocal production and it’s possible emotional outcome (for example, loud high notes could be perceived as anger, decisiveness, emotional breakdown, excitement). We will learn: How to deliver a song in a way that will make the audience connect and move by our performance. How to stand or move on stage, how to hold a microphone, and where to look. Use concrete acting tools that are summed up for the sole purpose of singing. Use concrete technical tools such as breath placements, volume, sound color, to achieve the emotional outcome. Participants will work on one or two songs they relate to.
