Workshops & Education
Give them a show: Demystifying Stagecraft
We talk through, and work through ways to help you relax on stage and build a stage persona. How to polish your performance and boost your confidence. We also look at microphone technique and communicating with your audience. Bring along your own song for a chance to try in front of the group (not everyone will have the opportunity within the workshop as time is limited). Ukuleles are ideal but not vital – suitable for beginners/intermediate.
“Ever wished you could feel relaxed on stage? Ever practise and practise at home for it all to go to pieces when you step in front of the mic? George & Mandi from Opera-lele will work with you through various steps to help you perform at your best in front of a crowd. Bring your ukulele, bring a song and be brave enough to give it a go!”

You will leave with some great practice ideas and we’ll help you to tackle any weaknesses and build on your strengths!
