Acting for Singers
I guide singers to a higher level of artistry, coaching them to a greater depth of characterization through a closer look at what they are singing. By answering questions about the music, text and situation, the singers uncover a new richness and joy in their performances.
With this unique approach, I frequently engage the audience giving the students authentic supportive feedback, and the audience a greater appreciation of compelling performances. All is done with humor, wisdom and a desire to share a wealth of knowledge and experience with developing artists.
A top performer captures their audience by intertwining the story with the music; delves into physical characteristics, back-stories and onstage relationships; and communicates the character to enrich their scenes, combining all aspects of the music to convey a character’s emotions and intentions.
A great singer plumbs the interpretive depths of a song through its melody, rhythms, harmonies, textures and language. They grasp the significance of both the text and the music, understanding how they work together, because that’s where inspiration lives.
