You've practised your songs, they're sounding good, but all the 'other stuff' about performing is still daunting. Dealing with nerves, getting on and off stage, introducing the songs, what to do if something goes wrong.
Join Jackie Kerin and Alan Davies for an afternoon workshop that focuses on the 'non-musical' aspects of being a performer, including:
- Forming a strong relationship with the audience
- Being natural, being yourself on stage
- Getting rid of the music stand - strategies for memorising lyrics
- Coping with lights, microphones and PAs
**The workshop will also be suitable for spoken-word performers such as storytellers, poets and MCs.
ABOUT THE PRESENTERS:
- Jackie Kerin is a trained actor and teacher with many years experience as a storyteller, MC and musician.
- Alan Davies is a trained teacher with experience as an actor, storyteller, MC, musician and PA operator.
