Michael's Workshops

    “Don’t sing the song . . . tell a story”

    Beginning, Intermediate, / , , Musical Theatre, , , /

    There is a fine line between singing the correct lyrics and notes and actually telling the story that the song sometimes hides behind its melody. This workshop helps the singer analyze a character thru-line, how to sift through all of a songs notes and lyrics to find the "core" of what it's trying to say. Presented by Michael Bowerman
