Singers love to perform! But how many of us love the process of learning our music? We all know it needs to get done, but how many of us do not enjoy this process or find it challenging, frustrating, or downright scary. Well, you are not alone! In this workshop, we will explore exactly how our brain goes about learning music, as well as how to include optimal coordination of our human design in this process. This will give us a new way to approach learning our pitches, rhythms, and text, more accurately and easily, so we can get on to the fun part….connecting with the audience in a performance!
