Performance Preparation Workshop

Dale 32 web

Do you suffer from Performance Anxiety? Do you feel that you are never at the top of your game when you need to perform? Would you like some expert input into your voice and performance skills? Are you too afraid to even try to get up and sing in front of other people? Or do you just need some “polishing up”?

This Workshop will provide you with proven and effective tools to apply to performance preparation to assist you to become bolder and to perform with more confidence. Dale Cox has taught these success skills to students over the last 16 years and students have become regular gig performers, recording artists, musical theatre performers, choir soloists, concert performers both here in Australia and in the UK, USA and Europe. What are you waiting for? Come along and learn from Dale’s extensive experience and research.

The Masterclass section is open to both those who want help with Performance Practice and those who wish to have a little polish added to their voice. Each performer will get approximately 15 minutes working with Dale one in one in front of the group. Dale’s expertise combined with her warmth and passion for great singing will leave you wanting to see and hear more. This is an exciting opportunity to work with one of Brisbane’s best Contemporary Voice Teachers and learn from both your experience, and from other singers.

Jeannette Lovetri, Somatic Voicework (TM) teacher extraordinaire! I will be attending her classes at Shenandoah Conservatorium in July 2015

I am very excited! This week I have booked my ticket to New York. I am going to the Shenandoah Conservatory for the CCM Vocal Pedagogy Institute in July next year, preceded by a couple of weeks in New York  to see some voice teachers in this amazing city and to enjoy the music, theatre and everything New York has to offer.

Yes, I have a Masters in Music Studies from the Queensland Conservatorium, specialisation in Vocal Pedagogy. So why continue studying? Well, as I subscribe to many voice journals I know that it is important to keep up to date, and to seek out the best. Many voice teachers have impacted in my teaching, some in positive ways and some as cautionary tales! I am committed to being a lifelong learner, I love teaching singing and I want to be as good at it as I possibly can be in my lifetime. This is my journey!

Those of you who follow Dale Cox Singing on Facebook know that I love Jeannette Lovetri’s blog, and often repost articles which speak to me. Jeannette runs the course at Shenandoah, and I can’t wait to join the hundreds of teachers she has impacted with her teaching. Two teachers I admire have done her course, Tracey Bourne in Victoria and Melissa Forbes (USQ) in Toowoomba, and I have been wanting to go over for a few years now. The time  is now, well, next July!

In other studio news, I welcome some new students, Hattie, Hudson, Tom, Eden and Chloe to the studio. Our end of year concert is on Sunday 7th December at the Metro Arts Studio in Edward st Brisbane – 4.30pm. Registration forms and invitations will be sent out this week. The general public is very welcome to come along and support these learner singers.

I am heading to Europe for December / January (yes, I have a LOT of musical events, theatre etc booked for while I am away) and so the studio is closed from December 7th – February 1st. I reopen on Monday 2nd February. If you plan to start lessons with me next year, please contact me ASAP to secure your place as my timeslots are filling fast.
