How Videos Can Help with Staging

I focused with a singer on staging today. She wanted to express the emotion of her song, and have the emotion show through her face and body movements as well as her voice.

We focused on arm/body movements for her slower emotional song. The song brought to mind the nice job Sarah McLachlan does on “I Love You,” so we watched that video, in which Sarah gets lost in the emotion of the song, while still connecting, has a nice flow of arm movement which matches the words and flow of the song;  and you can see the emotion of the song in her facial expressions and body movement, so the whole thing worked as a good performance.

Videos can be a big help in giving examples of various concepts for singers
