June’s Virtual Courses: Classes & Lessons to Power Up Your Musicianship

Over the past two months, COVID-19 has affected the music industry with a ruthless amount of hits — pushing the entire music community to quickly adapt to what we now call the New Normal. Despite these abrupt changes, it hasn’t stopped musicians and event professionals from concocting a large array of innovative ideas to continue performing, entertaining, connecting, and feeling. Wendy Parr, the founder of The Artist’s Circle and one of the industry’s top artistic/vocal coaches with over 28 years of experience addressing vocal creativity & exercises, has curated 4 classes and crash courses to help fellow musicians hone in on their skills for the upcoming month.

Want to focus on singing, technique, style, performance, and songwriting? — Scheduled for this upcoming Monday on June 1st at 11 AM PST: The Artist’s Toolbox workshop is a 1hr. Q&A session that addresses any songwriting questions any musician/music lover may have. This workshop focuses on not only providing practical tools for developing songs, a style, a sound, and a specific craft, but it also allows other members of the music community to virtually connect with each other during the shelter-in-place period.
