BEING onstage:

Acting for Musicians

What's the difference between a good technician and a great performer? The ability to reveal and demonstrate one's essence, that human element that shines only when a performer is completely free. Utilizing guided imagining, sensory and emotional exploration and performance feedback students will begin to experience a powerful emotional connection to their playing and as a result a new and affecting connection with their audience. 

We spoke with our own voices, and in our own mother tongues - German, English, Spanish, Turkish, and Ukrainian. We learned that it is enough just simply ‘to be.’ One especially moving moment was when Hannah improvised a beautiful piece on her flute. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house. She says, “this experience deeply moved me on an emotional level, and I trusted myself to play how I really am.”
