Skills for Singers




















Laurel Massé, founding member of Manhattan Transfer, will join forces with singer and artistic consultant Wendy Lane Bailey, and composer / pianist Rick Jensen to teach an ongoing class for singers every Monday night in Parsippany, NJ. Skills for Singers: What Every Performer Needs to Know is designed for singers of all genres and will cover song performance and interpretation, communicating with an audience, sequencing a set, working with accompanists, arrangers, and sidemen, and dealing with the unexpected on stage. In addition to the onstage skills covered the class will also deal with issues such as creating a visual image, setting goals, networking skills, and basic marketing ideas. Class size will be limited to allow ample personal attention for each participant. At the end of the course students will participate in a performance for an invited audience where they will showcase what they’ve learned.



Massé, Bailey & Jensen are interested in gathering a group of students from a broad spectrum of styles. “What we are teaching can be applied to any genre of music from opera to rock. Between the three of us there is a hardly a style of music that isn’t represented, and we believe that versatility is one of the keys to career longevity. What doesn’t change is how we approach the process of putting a set together,” says Massé. The trio is committed to seeing each of their students succeed both within the classroom and beyond, and as such, they work with each student to help them set and meet individual goals geared towards their level of experience and stated desires.

The class will begin Monday March 24th at 7:00 PM and continue every Monday for six weeks, ending May 5th (there is no class on April 7th). The final performance will be held the weekend following the May 5th class. Tuition is $360. The location for all classes will be The Black Bird Studios 181 New Road, Suite 305 Parsippany, NJ 07054. Students wishing to reserve space in the class or receive further information should contact Lane Middleton at Park Road Management at (646)831-0359 or via email at parkroadmanagement@verizon.net .
