1. As a participant - $65 workshop tuition

As a participant, you will get to work with Laurie for 15 minutes. You will get to experience the rest of the class as an observer.  This is the same Master Class that ordinarily costs much more!  Thanks to generous sponsors, we are able to offer this opportunity to everyone, including those who might not otherwise be able to afford to go elsewhere.

Participants must come to the class prepared to work with Laurie. You need to prepare two songs (as if you are coming to an audition). You need to be prepared to sing both songs in their entirety. You also need a 16 measure and a 32 measure cut from each song. You will need to bring a copy of the music for the pianist, Laurie, and yourself (if you need one). This is NOT an opportunity to ‘learn’ a song. This is a workshop to ‘perfect’ your audition selections.

Please make sure that the songs have contrasting styles and range. If you have an ‘audition binder’ with your audition repertoire, please bring it – Laurie would love to see your song list and help you select the best song for your auditions.


2. As an observer - $10 cover charge

As an observer, you will get to experience the class from the perspective of an audience member. You will get to watch 10 individuals work with Laurie on their audition prep. You will get to learn new techniques, skills, and tricks for successful auditions and performances.
