In every craft, to be a professional there are fundamentals that need to be learned.
And as the live show becomes more and more important to an artist’s career, the fundamentals and tools of performance are becoming more and more important.
You need to understand and know how to use those tools to become engaging onstage… and I have some resources to help you do that:
tools |toōlz| noun: – something regarded as necessary to the carrying out of one’s occupation.
engaging |enˈgāji ng | adj.: – establishing a meaningful connection with or causing to be involved
Bootcamp |boōt kamp| noun: – essential for the onstage performer who wants to understand how to capture and engage their ENTIRE audience!
There’s a question I’ve addressed numerous time – “what if I don’t have the money for all the ‘bells and whistles’ of light & media production that [insert star’s name here] has?”
I’m worked with numerous major artists over the years, some of whom tour all over the world. As part of a team of stage designers, choreographers, lighting and media directors, and more, we’ve helped these artists create world class shows.
But here’s the thing: I believe that every artist reading this can have a captivating show that includes musical, verbal, and visual elements, even without all the bells and whistles a major tour is able to use!
It starts with knowing your onstage tools and how to use them:
Your songs don’t sound the same… so why do they look the same? And I’m not talking about bells and whistles.
It’s what we’ll be teaching you at our Tom Jackson Bootcamp in Nashville this fall!
