Here is an opportunity to grow as an artist. You will find your voice and learn what to do with it.  We have the experience to help you move forward. At this cost, you will never get a workshop like this with the final result we offer.  In New York or Los Angeles, an opportunity like this would cost THOUSANDS and you wouldn't get individual CARE...we are so excited to help you succeed!! If you are ready for the next step in your career, this is it!!  A MUST DO!!  

 

RECORDING STUDIO PREPARATION

Vocal coaching. Vocal Stylizing. Getting the best performance from YOUR voice! What style of singer are you? What song selections and styles best flatter your voice? Do you want to record originals? We will prepare together, (before the studio session), so that you have a perfect vocal performance on the NSS Compilation CD, and for your own marketing needs. 

 

LIVE PERFORMANCE COACHING

We have the performance experience to enhance your performance by showing you how to move through the music you are performing with emotion, body movement, facial expressions and even dance moves. Standing and singing is not enough, it makes you look terrified and inexperienced.  It’s time to break out of that "I am nervous" box.  Singing is telling a story. What is the story you are telling with your song? 

 

ARTIST DEVELOPMENT

Working in the entertainment field is tough. There is performance and there is business. Having an experienced team who is credible and cares about you and your career choices is not easy to find, anywhere! If singing is truly what you love, you will need to know how to develop as an artist on both the "show" and the "business" sides of a career in music. 

 

MARKETING STRATEGIES

You can sing. You have a few songs recorded on a CD for people to listen to. Now what?  How do you get your music out there?  How do you get work? How do you get seen? Where do you go? Who do you contact? Do you know what you need to do legally to protect yourself? Do you know how to market yourself as an entertainer? Where do you want to perform?  Our years of experience will answer all of these questions for you.
