Performance Skills for Young Musicians

Have you ever wished you felt more comfortable in front of an audience? Does introducing yourself and your piece make you more nervous than playing your instrument? If so, you’re not alone, and we have a workshop to help you learn valuable skills to improve your performance in front of an audience.

Students will spend portions of the day in acting class with a focus on improvisational games and a portion of the day exploring Stagecraft for Musicians concepts with acting and music teachers.

Our team of acting and music instructors will engage your creative side through theater games, exercises, and improvisational activities while giving you the technical knowledge to hit your mark on stage, connect meaningfully with your audience, and perform with confidence!

Note: Please bring your instrument and a simple song to play or sing. Students should bring a nut-free snack and lunch and water bottle.
