Artists may choose any class they want, between General Sessions and Break-Out Classes. The 2016 schedule is being fine tuned, but please review last year’s for an idea of the classes and structure. (click on the image to expand) The days begin with VU Fit revitalizing yoga and reflective meditation classes. We then provide a variety of general sessions classes covering topics in the past such as; “Honesty In Artistry”, “Resurrecting Your Musical Dreams”, “GPS For Your Career, “Song Placement Magic”, and “Writing Like You Mean It”. We offer classes here that make you dissect yourself as an artist, and learn how to find new creative ways to grow for yourself and your career. We also offer smaller breakout classes throughout the day covering topics in the past such as; “Find Your It Factor”, “How To Lead Your Band To Glory”, “Find Your Signature Sound”, “Artist vs. Analyst”, “The Art Of Voice Over”, and “Artistry In Motion”. These classes are often two part classes that showcase different avenues of vocal and career development that inspire you to think outside the box!
