(Yes, I forgot to write yesterday so this is a day late)
Do you anticipate returning to auditions/rehearsals for:
Community (or professional) theater?
And you really haven’t done all that much over the past year of pandemic? Or even if you have, you feel like there’s more you can do?
Do you need a tune-up?
Or do you feel like you need to tune IN to your craft?
Because I can’t go more than a few weeks without planning something, I will be holding three back-to-whatever workshops/masterclasses the week before Labor Day. There will be no lessons that week, but there will be things happening. The tentative time slot will be 6-7:30pm EDT on each day.
I’m still in the process of figuring them out. I have someone lined up for the Wednesday slot, but we haven’t made it official. I have reached out to a nationally known conductor/performer/composer for the Thursday slot. I am planning to have Tuesday be a vocal boot camp of sorts featuring two other teachers and myself.
Cost is also still TBD. People can spring for all three days or individual days. Performing in the masterclass will, of course, be more expensive than just auditing.
In other words, more info to come – in the meantime, save the dates!
****** If you want to tune up and tune in, but want to do it one-on-one,
you can work with me! Taking new students for the
remainder of summer and for the 2021-2022 term.
