Shakura’s class will give you insight into how to present your most authentic self with confidence while singing. It will help identify and strengthen your entire performance vocally and performance-wise. You’ll come away with new understanding of your capabilities and an awareness of how strongly perception can be changed by the sound of a voice. You’ll leave feeling confident about your performance ability.

It’ll be half solo and half group work.

Bring: a majorly positive attitude, courageous spirit and no fear of failing plus a willingness to sing in front of others and an ability to sing at least one song acapella. Also bring printed lyrics of 2-3 songs you’d like to perform plus a notebook, voice recorder if possible and comfortable, non-restrictive clothing.
