MIC TECHNIQUE with DAN McLEAN JR. | 75min.
Saturday 1:30 & 3:30 (repeat)
The ukulele compells performance and inevitably you'll find yourself staring down a microphone.
The strength of your performance is hugely
dependent on your your microphone technique.
Effective use of a microphone requires technique and a clear sense of how they work. We're excited about this unique workshop and hope that many of you will take advantage of one of the two occassions it is being presented.
We can ALL benefit from this fantastic workshop
Dan really understands microphone characteristics, techniques and applications - and will present everything in easy terms, delivering all the knowledge you need to master your mic. Selected participants will have an opportunity to test what they learn with one-on-one coaching.
He employs casual, non-technical language to talk about:
The characteristics of vocal mics used for live performance
How to use those characteristics to your advantage vs. letting them take advantage of YOU
Your proximity and position relative to the microphone
How to use the microphone so that your quiet singing is heard, while your loud singing is not overpowering
How to minimize "popping P's"
