Going on stage is a huge privilege. To stand out professionally professionally, the artist must give the audience a memorable experience. Do you have a clear plan to achieve this?

Hosted by Olivier Laroche


In general, the workshop is intended to help artists to surpass themselves in certain aspects related to their artistic practice. Four main themes will be addressed:


  1. The performance and audience loyalty: what is the artist’s mission on stage
  2. Preparation: how to image a show plan, defining the objectives to be reached, how to create highlights and in what order to perform the songs (writing a show template)
  3. The rehearsal, a space for creation: how to plan rehearsals well, how to dare to rethink arrangements for the stage and how to use music to propel the artist
  4. Practical demonstration in front of an audience: An artist will take part in a coaching session in front of an audience in order to put into practice the theoretical concepts discussed above.
