Alex McArthur - Musical Theater Workshops - Buffalo Music Club

Musical Theatre Workshop with Alex McArthur

Let's become better performers—together.

The goal of these workshops is to help aspiring artists with things they are currently working on, with prep work done in advance. This creates a positive, comfortable community that will help each other learn and grow, with an allotted amount of time for giving suggestions to each performer. An open mind is necessary in order to participate, since we will be experimenting with different techniques on the spot that may or may not work specifically for them in order to discover what works best for each student. Students take part practicing in front of their peers, learning that making mistakes in the process is all part of the growth, and that vulnerability is needed in order to become a better performer—and a better human.
