September always makes us a wee bit nostalgic for the whole "back to school" thing; fresh notebooks, sharp pencils, new clothes (Well, mostly the clothes) and the excitement of starting all over again. Since we're both a bit long in the tooth to be boarding the big yellow bus, we decided that perhaps it is better for us to celebrate this time of year by enjoying a classroom of our very own. We are thrilled to announce that we will be doing our Words & Music: a Master Class for Singers in two locations here on the East Coast. On Saturday September 27th we will be in Wendy Lane's former home base Washington, DC, and Saturday October 4th we will be in our current home town New York City.
We both love to be on stage ourselves more than anything, however helping other performers to hone their skills in a supportive and FUN atmosphere runs a close second. The fact that we encourage singers of all genres to participate only adds to the creative environment. We've had Jazz singers, cabaret singers, folk singers, pop singers, musical theatre singers, and Christian singers all in one class and the results have been amazing. It is wonderful to see how performers take coaching and change before your very eyes, but it is equally striking to see a group of eight to ten performers who were strangers bond and cheer each other on. We try to cover as much ground as possible in our sessions, and make sure we are aware of what each student's goal is in taking the class. For time and location details look at the blog calendar to the right of this column. If you’d like more information about enrollment, what the class covers, etc. contact Park Road Management.
