BMI To Host Vocal Workshop

Posted in News on May 7, 2007

BMI is sponsoring a six-week vocal workshop to help songwriters develop the capacity to showcase their own songs. Lead by vocal coach, performer and songwriter Beth Burrows, the workshop is designed to help develop the skills needed to deliver songs in a convincing and effective way.

The objectives of this six-week course are to introduce the participant to the foundations of effective vocal techniques and stage presence. The class will focus on posture, appropriate breathing, tone, song preparation, resonance and diction. The workshop will help songwriters and vocalists to:

  • Gain more confidence in their ability to “sell” and sing a song.
  • Be more confident in singing in front of others.
  • Build strength and flexibility in their voice.

Classes will meet on Wednesdays, starting June 20 and will be held over six consecutive weeks, with the exception of 4th of July week, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. All classes will be held at the BMI offices at 320 West 57th Street, 3rd Floors.

Class size is limited and acceptance into the BMI vocal workshop is at the sole discretion of the instructor and BMI representatives. There is no fee; participants will be notified by e-mail of their acceptance. All submissions must be received before June 5, 2007. For additional information, contact Samantha Cox at
