WHO SHOULD ATTEND
These workshops are open to students of all levels of experience. Pierce and Wendy work with each student at her or his own level of skill and experience.
PREPARATION FOR PARTICIPANTS
All participants will be expected to have at least one musical theater song fully memorized to be worked-on throughout the day and performed at the end of the day in the group master class. Students must bring the full sheet music (with piano accompaniment in the correct key) for their song(s) with them to the workshop. Students are encouraged bring more than one memorized song (from musical theater) so that there are options to choose from, but in most cases, only one song per student will be used in the workshop. Wendy and Pierce are available to provide assistance in selecting and/or finding music.
Students will work in private one-on-one sessions with both Pierce and Wendy, as well as with the professional accompanist, the wonderful Nicki Kerns. Students will also have a break period of approximately 15-25 minutes, depending on the day’s specific scheduling. At the end of the day, the class will culminate in a group master class, where each student presents and performs her/his work and receives feedback and support from Pierce and Wendy.
All payments and registrations are non-refundable and non-transferable.
