There are two ways to participate: (1) perform and observe, or (2) observe.
Performers will perform up to two minutes of a prepared solo for the instructor and the students in their section in a group video call format. Performers will receive feedback from the instructor (live video) and observers (via chat) on their performance. Feedback could include: styling, vocal technique, posture, vowels, breathing, and more. Performers will need to have their song ready to perform with an accompaniment track (many accompaniments can be found on YouTube or karaoke sites). Performers will need prepare their environment ahead of time so they have a stable shot of themselves from the waist up (computer with webcam) and can play their accompaniment from a second device (mobile phone or tablet).
