Creating a Great Live Show

Mar 16, 2017

12:30pm – 2:00pm CT

Performance skills will be taught by Live Music Producer, Tom Jackson, including; creating moments, developing confidence, rearranging your recorded songs for the live show, the psychology of an audience, (looking at the show from your audience's perspective), movement onstage without being hokey, (NOT choreography, drama or dance), the relationship between form and spontaneity onstage, generating more revenue from your live show, giving the audience what they want without changing who you are as an artist. Tom will also put a band onstage and work through performance concepts in front of the audience, demonstrating how to turn a good performance into a great performance.
