Dawn Arnold, certified master teacher of the Michael Chekhov Technique, will lead singers to explore the effective and inspiring tools of the Chekhov Technique and guide them in applying the tools to their songs or arias.

Introduction to the Chekhov Technique Workshop

This introduction to the Chekhov Technique will explore the basic concepts of the technique that connect body and mind and support the creative process for the singer working on their roles and material. We will focus on the gem of the technique, the Psychological Gesture and see how to use it to connect to the character and realize the scene inwardly and outwardly. The workshop is active, but all participants can feel comfortable in adapting the work to their physical ability level. It is energizing, liberating, and fun!

Singers new to the Chekhov Technique should take this workshop prior to the Saturday application workshop.

Working with the Chekhov Technique for Singers

Following our workshop this last spring with SongShop, this workshop is for singers who have had some exposure to the Chekhov Technique. Singers will be guided to apply the Chekhov Technique to their material, exploring how to relate to the music and text through the body/mind to make the vital connections that enable them to feel the synergy in their acting and singing.

After a Chekhov warm-up and preliminary exploration, we will work one on one. Singers may opt to explore excerpts from their material or work through an entire piece. Singers wanting to work through an entire piece must sign up prior to the workshop so that we can schedule workshop time accordingly.

An accompanist will work with us for this workshop. Bring two copies of your music in your right key, one for the accompanist.

Workshop venue:
The Christian Community Church
2135 W Wilson, Chicago, IL 60625
