LIVE PERFORMANCE PROGRAM
Many of the young artists emerging today lack basic performance skills. While technology has perfected the art of recording and the inevitable electronic “remedies” for flaws, inconsistency and timing, this can not be duplicated live.
My Live Performance Program offers a specific solution for people who wish to learn recording and further their knowledge in music, but whose primary focus is entertaining, touring and working a stage.

My proposed course outline can be taken module by module, a choice of any number of the modules or the whole course involving the full seven modules.  The modules will instruct the student in the following areas and the whole course is taken over thirty-three weeks with two class increments per week.

DEMO RECORDING - $30.00 per hour
