Who should take Meisner in Music?Artists should take this class if they're looking to reconnect with their bodies while they perform, trust their instruments, and find presence and joy in the art of making music. Many of our students come to us after feeling stuck in their musical performances, overwhelmed from classical training, exhausted by the industry, or wanting to take their crafts to the next level.
What is the Meisner technique?"I'm a very nonintellectual teacher of acting. My approach is based on bringing the actor back to their emotional impulses and to acting that is firmly rooted in the instinctive. It is based on the fact that all good acting comes from the heart, as it were, and that there's no mentality in it." - Sanford Meisner As musicians, we’re in our heads enough as it is. The aim of Meisner in Music is to equip artists with a technique that centers them in the present moment, shifts the focus off of themselves and into their instincts, and allows them to enjoy moments of musicianship again.
I’ve never taken Meisner. Would your classes be a fit?Absolutely! Our students range from Meisner newbies to seasoned pros. Whether you’ve had zero Meisner training or years of it, we have faith that you will benefit from our classes.
Do I need any prior acting experience to join the classes?No prior acting experience is required. Our classes welcome individuals at all levels, and while Meisner is an acting technique, its tools guide us more toward presence in every moment of life, not just ones that are in a performance.
Would I be the only beginner in my class?Our classes include all levels so you will likely be among other beginners as well as students who have been with us for varying lengths of time. We meet each student where they are and go slowly and deliberately. Whether you're new to Meisner or a seasoned pro, we'll cater your individual work to you and make sure that you get the most out of your class.
Can I audit a class?While we don't open our classes for audits, we do have free consult calls to see if Meisner in Music would be a fit for your needs. You may book a call by going to any offering's page.
Should I be a professional musician to join your classes?No. While many of our students are pursuing music careers professionally, you don't need to consider yourself a professional musician to join our classes. The Meisner in Music technique is more about embodiment and tapping into your voice's natural abilities so all levels of experience are welcome. Our classes are designed to nurture your artistic expression so come as you are and let us guide you on an enriching journey of musical discovery!
