THERE WILL BE OPTIONAL WORKSHOPS ON 

AUGUST 5 (AUDITION PREP) $25

SEPTEMBER 8 (SHOW PERFORMANCE PREP) $25

These workshops are optional and are intended as an affordable small group training session (1 hour per session) - useful for performers who are entering for the first time or would just like advice on how to develop and improve their performance, including selecting the best piece to suit their talents and performing to their full potential.

Performers should come to the session with a clear goal e.g. they may be trying to decide on a piece and should come prepared to perform possible pieces, or they may have decided on a piece so should come to perform and receive feedback and direction on how to improve their piece to wow the audience and judges. 

To book a place at a workshop led by Kirsty Budding (limited places) please complete the form below. You will be assigned a time late morning or early afternoon on the requested date; if you have a time preference on the day, please specify in the form below. 

The fee is payable at reception on the day. Venue: Playing Field Studio, 2 Kingsley St, Acton.
