"So You Want To Be A Star" is the must go to workshop for any artist who is really serious about refining his or her craft. Take it from me, as a singer who has been singing and performing most of my life; I have quite a bit of experience under my belt, and I really thought I knew a lot about what it takes to be a good performer, until I got to this workshop. I was so amazed by how much I learned in such a short period of time and how intense the course could be.
I've come across many vocal instructors who are good at what they do, but I took away more from one month of sessions with Chris Curry than I have learned in the years of training I've had elsewhere.This is not your typical vocal class, so if you really are ready to take your singing above and beyond to the next level, this class is definitely for you.
Lyndsay Bellefleur, Irvington, New Jersey; March 2009
I was a participant in the February/March 2009 singing classes & workshops and this is my review.
Knowing how to sing a song isn't all there is to singing. After enrolling in So You Want To Be A Star's singing classes and workshops I learned another side to singing. Out of the many, many things that I learned, the most exciting was learning how to stylize a song and making it my very own vocal arrangement.
Thanks to So You Want To Be A Star, I no longer view singing as just opening up my mouth and singing a song. So to the rest of the world, if you are planning to hit the stage or record any time soon, check out So You Want To Be A Star and get some guaranteed assistance.
I want to personally thank Mr. Chris Curry for sharing with me his expertise, his personal knowledge about the music industry and his golden vocals.
