Do you have a Disney song, pop hit, or show tune you just have to do in your own way? Now's your chance to sing as the characters you love with the master of character singing, Desiree Goyette! She'll cover singing and warm up techniques, breath support, and maintaining a consistent character voice while singing those sweet (or villainous) melodies. Students are welcome to bring their favorite song(s) to work with.

Okay, you’ve studied the character description, audition sides, tone of the scene, and you’ve chosen a voice. But why isn’t it “clicking?” Sometimes, in order to truly find a character, you need to FIND THE FUN! This prolific voice performer calls upon decades of experience as well as a Master’s in Psychology to help each student find ways to access real, personal connection, inspiring the joy that makes a role “fun” for you. This class is limited to 10 students in order to allow participants more time to dive deeper into their own process (one character per class day) and support other students as they work through their own material. Julie offers a 30-minute Q&A after each class (attendance optional).
