Bill Brickey has designed THE class for the aspiring performing artists. Singer/Songwriters and/or instrumentalists who are maneuvering the rough waters of working as a solo, duo or trio, etc. at Open Mics finally have a class all their own! This class takes you and your fellow classmates through song choice, microphone techniques, and even audience banter. First you perform your songs in class as if it were a real open mic, and polish your skills of dynamics, and improvisation. Learn the ropes of playing live with constant feedback from an experienced professional. The class culminates with two live recitals at venues in the Chicago area. Take Open Stage 101 and then take your act on the road with confidence!

Special Info

You’ll need four complete songs (covers or originals) you can sing and play by heart. This class addresses performance skills NOT guitar skills.
