When "I thought Drama was the an Easy Credit" becomes "I have to perform on Broadway" will explore ideas of how to prepare students at a high school age for what a professional career in the performing arts may entail. In a conversational format, we'll explore some of the things teachers can be doing and encouraging in their programs to equip and guide students towards auditions for post-secondary training as a first step towards becoming professional artists, cultivating the skills as they present in young artists, and managing the wide range of skillsets and talents that are brought together in one class. We'll also explore what demands, expectations and trends the industry has on today's working artists. Coming from my experience both training and working as a Musician, Theatre & Music Director in Los Angeles, NYC, and currently engaged as the Artistic and Education Director at the Canadian College of Performing Arts, I'll facilitate discussions around these topics and share some key things to support the work educators are doing in their home programs.
A way to take notes and experiences to share and talk about.
