In June, Rachel Velarde, a professor for the College of Fine Arts at Grand Canyon University, attended the Acoustic Vocal Pedagogy Workshop at New England Conservatory. The workshop was a five-day seminar from June 14 to 19 which gave people an opportunity to attend engaging and thought-provoking presentations on vocal acoustics and psychoacoustics, master classes in its pedagogic application and tutorials in technology for studio and research use. The remaining time at the workshop was left to engage in follow up discussions with others and observe and take lessons with the instructors of each course.
A dress rehearsal is the final rehearsal of a live show. It is where everything is done as if it was a live performance to make sure everything is perfect for the actual show. This is a very important aspect of the show as a performer and also very beneficial for a fan watching from the seats. You can see the team work, blood, sweat and tears that is put into a show. Check out the benefits from viewing a dress rehearsal down below:
