Monthly Performance Class – May
Wednesday, May 8, 2019
6:00pm – 10:00pm
Acting instructor, Renato Biribin, Jr., joins Julia Gregory as they teach enrolled singers how to craft their song to performance level. Singers learn how to tell the story in a more meaningful way and with a deeper connection as an actor. Renato focuses on developing the character using the given circumstances of the scene leading into the song, the text of the song, and the ‘Who Am I?’ of the role. Julia focuses on opening up the student’s voice and the musicality of the performance. She will review vocal techniques that go into top-level vocal production and how the structure and arrangement of the song aids the performer in making strong acting choices. Each student should have one song prepared to sing and will receive adjustments from both Julia and Renato.
“I am a performing professional who owes a great deal of credit to Julia Gregory. Her coaching and instruction helped me tremendously. I have and will continue to refer her to every singer who asks me for the name of a top notch teacher!”
“With Julia’s guidance, my daughter was admitted to eight top musical theatre programs with hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships.”
“With Julia’s guidance I won 2nd place at the 2005 Los Angeles Spotlight Awards. She helped me with college auditions and I just graduated Northwestern University.”
“Working with Julia has changed the way I sing! She has an uncanny ability to hear what’s working and what’s not and to lead students toward producing the desired sound.”
