Dynamics in Performance Workshop Series

The formal definition of dynamics in music is the variation in loudness between notes or phrases. The execution of dynamics also extends beyond loudness to include changes in timbre and sometimes tempo. In performance, dynamics also includes body movements, facial expression, emphasis on certain words, and variation between loud and soft.  

We will explore together the power of dynamics in expressing emotion, telling a story, and delivering a song. We’ll look at some tips and tricks for providing your performances with variety, movement, and emotional arc. We will address how breathing, awareness, and song-mapping tie in to delivering an engaging performance. Let’s have fun and learn from each other

Tuesdays in September from 7-8:30 pm. In partnership with Portland’s beloved Artichoke Music. $100 for all 4 workshops. $30 for single drop-in. Click here for registration info!
