Acting Coaching for Singers
Stage presence and interpretation are essential to the art of singing, integrating the meaning in the text of a song with a musical performance. Singers must communicate honestly what a song is saying. The best artists have this skill - the ability to touch, move and inspire their audience.
Successful singers connect with and involve an audience. Today's conductors, agents and stage directors hire singers based on total presentation, not just vocal ability.
