Docent Sandra Kreisler: "In the course of my seminar alumni will learn how to present songs (lyrics and music have to be learned by heart) on stage with the means of „acting while singing“, the American style of interpretation of lyrics with music, which will bring the message deep into the hearts of the audience.

Stage presence, verbalism, expressiveness and emphasis, musical accentuation while transporting the message are the basis of every successful performance.

The participants will arrive whith two songs, that they have learned by heart. At least one of these songs will be worked until it is ready for performance and – if possible – presented before an audience. In addition, there will be the possibility to expose your own lyrics to my constructive criticism in order to perfect your work. Who wants can also try to compose his/her own music.

Languages that will be used: German and English"
