Self-Tape Success: Shedding Some Light

This Thursday evening at 7pm, Mezzoid Voice Studio is hosting Las Vegas performer and voice teacher Amanda Kaiser in a workshop/masterclass that will cover how to do the perfect self-tape. Whether you need to know how to set up lighting and sound for a prescreen audition, an online performance, or just how to look best on camera (because being online is a thing that will continue post-pandemic), this is the workshop for you.

Following a presentation on the details of setting up a self-tape, Amanda will work with up to 4 singers on their lighting, sound quality, and audition cut (we still have room for one more!). All present will receive handouts on:

1. Suggested Lighting Options
2. Suggested Microphones
3. Awesome Audition Checklist

A Q&A will follow in the remaining time.

This is not to be missed! Amanda is a veritable force of nature.
