This Fall, we're going

deep.

Meisner is not just an acting technique.

It's a toolset that helps us to better understand

our anxieties,

defenses,

& bodies' natural reactions to fear.

We will be journaling, discussing, & studying

psychological research about the voice & trauma,

our own histories & stored beliefs about our voices,

& how our past experiences with voice manifest themselves now.

Gain a better understanding of

why our bodies & brains react the way they do

 

when we ask them to engage in the vulnerable act of singing.

Join us this Fall as we study the Meisner technique alongside

Trauma-Informed Singing.

Feel ready?

"Meisner in Music qualmed my fears about feeling pressured and judged in a class with other actors. This class stressed authenticity and embracing every single thing about yourself and your environment, which cracked me open and gave me permission to let go of perfectionism, suppression, and facades. After taking this class, I am addicted to the feeling of being this

open and aware."

- Lauren U.

"Meisner in Music's supportive and loving environment creates a safe space for all actors that allows us to spread our wings and leave self judgements at the door. It gets you out of your head and into the world of your piece with tremendous

freedom and liberation."
