About This Activity

Monthly Performance Workshop with Kerri Lowe. 2pm-4pm $20 The monthly performance workshop is for anyone who wants to get comfortable singing and playing in front of others and get real-time feedback on their performance in a safe, friendly group environment. We will start with a group warm-up that teaches centering breathing techniques for pre-performance, then move into that month's "lesson."

There's also space for Q&A about performance, booking, building a setlist, etc. Original and traditional or cover songs are all welcome.

Regardless of medium, Lowe is obsessed and inspired by the dynamics of stagecraft and sees solo performance as a unique opportunity for leadership, risk, personal growth, and creative enchantment. Lowe has studied with the M
