MONTHLY MEETING – SUNDAY NOV 5 AT 3PM – Threadgills South
It’s time again for the monthly meeting. The workshop this month is Performance Coaching with Giulia Millanta. We meet the first Sunday of each month at Threadgills South on Riverside. Everyone is welcome and there is no cost to participate in this event.
GIULIA MILLANTA – PERFORMANCE COACHING WORKSHOP
In this class we will talk about different aspect of a performance and how to get ready for it.
Attendees will have a chance to perform a song (an original or a cover) in front of the class and we’ll discuss the issues that may arise.
The main points we will focus on will be:
1- Lyrics: we’ll work on the lyrics in a “theatrical” way, finding a personal way to interpret the song.
2- The key and vocal issues: make sure there are no vocal issues, which includes checking the key, explore different ones, address the parts that are vocally challenging
3- Accompaniment: making sure the guitar (or piano) part works well where the vocals and it’s all flowing smoothly.
4- Stage presence (the most important one): we’ll make sure the song is delivered at its full potential, we’ll address all the little mistakes we make on stage and practice how to introduce the song in an engaging way.
