Student Workshop: Performance Without Stage Fright
Instructor: Joe Arnold
Fee: $18.00
Time:  11:00am – 12:30pm
Day: Saturday, October 7th

  • Does your student you feel anxious when they perform?  Is stage fright preventing them from performing in basic recitals?  For some young musicians, their stage fright is so intense they don't even want to perform any more.  What if they were able to get up in front of a crowd and perform without fear?  How amazing would it be for your student to be able to show off their stuff at a Conservatory recital, all the while feeling totally comfortable and relaxed?  "Performance Without Stage Fright" is a workshop for young musicians whose performance anxiety gets in the way of their ability to perform. In this workshop we will uncover any fear-based beliefs about performance, as well as habits of body and mind which cause performance anxiety.  By the end of this workshop, young musicians will have some practical tools for relieving the stage fright that might otherwise prevent them from performing in this upcoming recital, and beyond.  This workshop is based on the principles of the Alexander Technique, a mindfulness-based method of relieving tension and anxiety.

Student Workshop: Accents for the Actor & Singer
Instructor: Megan Malloy
Fee: $25.00
Time:  12:30 – 2:30pm
Day: Saturday, October 28th

  • Many plays and musicals require an accent or dialect to make a character believable to an audience.  Ever wondered how to do this?  If so, you're not alone!  In this 2 hour dialect workshop, you will properly warm up your voice, learn techniques to sound authentically British (Mary Poppins, Peter Pan, My Fair Lady, Pirates of Penzance and Oliver!) and also cover the American Southern dialect (WaitressOklahoma!, Floyd Collins, and Steel Magnolias).  Have fun, learn some new tools for the stage and stretch your artistic leg!
