Hello, I must apologise for not being able to keep up with the Performer’s Edge blogs. So much to do, so little time! We were all so amazed this week to find we had come to the 10th and final class so soon. We all agreed it had been a great journey, we’d grown and everyone said they were walking away with some really useful strategies and mind set changes to help with future performances. Three of the students will be putting themselves to the test this Sunday at the Sing Vocal Studio Christmas Concert at The Regal Room in Hammersmith! I can’t wait.
I have really enjoyed running this class. We’ve had some great discussions and sharing of experience. Everyone has really laid themselves out in order to take their performing to the next level. Not an easy task as performing and singing can leave a person feeling very vulnerable and insecure. To be able to admit one feels like this and then to find ways of moving through the self doubt, fear and insecurities is necessary if you are to deliver a performance that reaches it’s fullest potential, delivers the message and makes the audience stop to listen. What a relief, in my mind, that there are many strategies and techniques that can help us to do this and mostly easy to access too.
One of the biggest pleasures I get out of running this course is watching people blossom and grow over the weeks. Seeing them open up to the possibilites and exploring their performances, finding unexpected depth and traits to ensure they bring authenticity to the stage or microphone.
So thank you Performer’s Edge class Sept 2011 for sharing and listening. I wish you all the very best in singing and performing. You will find what some of them have to say about their experience on the Testimonials page
