In this class, you will have the chance to perform in front of your peers and receive constructive criticism. Everyone will be a performer as well as an audience member. The class will be based around honesty and respect. Performing is a very physical act, in addition to being mental and emotional. Gain an awareness of your body, mind and song. Performances will include cover songs and/or original compositions. Bring your instrument and an open mind. You will become a more confident and relaxed performer, which allows your best music to come out. This class is open to anyone who can perform at least 3 songs start to finish. All styles, instruments and levels welcome! Sean P. Rogan plays guitar AND sings at the same time.
