Michael Perkins and Justin Glibbery are coming to town to share the secrets of their success on stage.  They bring a tremendous love of music and their rigorous pursuit of excellence. They will start the day with a performance to set the tone for the day.  In the morning session, you will explore the elements of a successful performance, including:
  • preparation, content and delivery of a performance
  • basic introduction to sound and stage equipment
  • stage presence and rapport building with an audience
  • how to end a performance and leave the audience satisfied

In the afternoon, Michael and Justin will work with a selection of participants to create a performance and make a digital recording of their work for them to take home.

 

What an opportunity! Sign up now!
