In this two-hour workshop, internationally acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Michael Simic (Mikelangelo) will get to the heart how you can deliver your music in the live setting. Whatever genres you’re into, this workshop is about opening up your potential and how you can best showcase your work. There will be no discussion of right or wrong ways to perform, we’ll be honing in on your vision and how to make that a reality.

Whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert or anywhere in between, if you want to build a career in music, your live show is key to connecting with your audience and with industry. The more powerful your performance is, the greater your chance of breaking through. You’ve put endless hours into developing your music and you’ve got big dreams about the artist you’d like to be, it’s time to learn how to channel that creative energy into your live show.

Break through the conversation on stage anxiety!

  • Feel more comfortable when performing live

  • Improve any stage of your career to manifest the live show you dream of

  • Introducing creative ideas about performance, staging, lighting, projection and sound

  • Understand your venue, your audience and their experience
