Workshops / masterclasses / group classes / festival adjudication
I love working with groups of people. I love the shared experiences of workshops, masterclasses, group classes, and music festivals.
I am particularly passionate about these topics:
- Discovering how the voice works
- Using play and exploration to find freedom/options in the voice and body
- Singing in different styles
- Caring for the voice
- Developing new and fun practice habits or warm-up routines
- Finding your solo voice within a group or an ensemble
- Mitigating performance anxiety
On the business and admin spectrum, I’m happy to share insights on any of the following topics:
- Being an artistic director
- Producing shows/concerts
- Writing grants and project proposals
- Curating programs
- Balancing arts admin and performance
Please be in touch to discuss what I can offer you and your group. You will be directed to book a free 30-minute chat. From there we can curate exactly what you and your group wants.
A bit of background:
Virtual and in-person sessions available for university and high school music/drama classes/clubs, choirs, as well as voice and acting studios for musical theatre, Western classical, and pop genres. Reach out if you want to plan a workshop or group session and aren’t sure where to start.
