Open Mic Prep
Open Mic Prep is for singers, instrumentalists, singer-song-writers, and anyone who would like to prepare for Open Mic. Anyone who’s ever wondered about what it takes to perform at Open Mic and be terrific, confident, and completely prepared from start to finish — even your very first time!



This workshop will provide valuable information for everyone, performing any style of music. We'll cover the nuts & bolts: every aspect of your song, including intro, outro, and everything in the middle. Your stage presence. How to introduce yourself and your song. How do you communicate with a pianist you have never met before? Do you have to make eye contact with people in the audience when you would actually prefer to close your eyes? Plus other issues too. If your song has 12 verses, can you sing them all? We cover every detail. This workshop is good for everyone, including those who don't need piano accompaniment.
