Are you an aspiring singer or entertainer, looking for guidance and support through what can often be a cut throat industry? We are here to show you how to build a business out of your talents and to help nurture you into the performer you long to be.
Anyone can stand on a stage, but to command the attention of an audience and engage with them is an art form. This skill is called artistry, and it is what sets each performer out from the rest. We now live in a world highly driven by media & entertainment, so just being able to sing or play an instrument is not enough on its own to be successful in the entertainment industry. It is true that a lot of the most successful performers have natural charisma but it doesn’t mean that they always feel confident. How do they regularly step out onto stage and be seemingly in complete control of the audience? We will work on techniques that you can use to help engage people and keep their attention.
Confidence Building – Do you want to sing for an audience but feel stifled by nerves? Do people tell you that you can sing but you are not sure how to move from bedroom / karaoke singer to using it as a profession? We will help you to assess your current level and construct a plan to get you where you want to be. It may be that you don’t even want to perform in public but want to work on techniques to overcome nerves in public situations or just in a general sense have more confidence.
