Most singers and performers spend an incredible amount of time rehearsing and pay a fortune on equipment to make sure everything “sounds” right. In today’s world, not enough time is spent learning how to make a real connection between the performer and their audience.

If you’re serious about improving your stage craft and becoming a fearless performer, then we highly recommend this workshop!

-How to be fearless and command the stage no matter the circumstances!
-What people are saying:
“Anyone can just grab the microphone and sing. It takes a lot of time, courage and determination to be a performer. I still use every method I’ve learned in the Performance workshop, EVERY TIME I perform. My life has completely changed!”
“I partook in the performance workshop at ET Studio Productions in February 2015. Teaching by her side were two of my talented mentors, Kim Ince and Jes Hudak. This four week workshop ultimately changed my life. It taught me how all we have to do is try. We are all human and no one is perfect. Stay focused, take a leap of faith, take a risk, and never miss out on an opportunity Laura, Kim, and Jes taught me how to have confidence in myself and embrace my originality and my imperfections. Before the workshop I was too scared to even step foot on a stage, and now I never want to put down the microphone!”
“Performance coaching with ET Studio’s was an amazing experience! I not only learned my audition song, but was taught how to act/behave as well. The confidence I’ve gained since then is unbelievable. I never thought I could stand in front of a room of judges and give it my all. Every person that wants to be confident and sing, needs this Workshop in their life!”
“Laura is wonderful on so many levels. She has incredible talent, and a love for her craft that she passes on to her students. She is always professional, friendly, and fun. She relates to her students on their level, while always trying to bring them up to the next level. As an artist, a person, and a teacher, she deserves the highest praise there is.”
“I love that I was able to show my flaws and weaknesses without feeling embarrassed. Most teachers want to change you , but what I love about Laura is that she understands and listens to the type of artist I want to be and guides me in that direction.”
