Master Class Testimonials
"Ken! Thanks so much for yesterday! I had such a fantastic breakthrough at the gig afterwards. I could see the difference with my interaction with the crowd. Being comfortable with the energy I’m bringing was such a great place to come from. This resulted in a full dance floor pretty much all night, singing along with the audience a little bit, making more direct eye contact with them so they felt seen, and even a little banter between songs! The audience was so engaged and responsive. The band leader noticed the shift in energy as well, mentioning it was the best we’ve sounded in a while. Totally owe it to your teaching and the work we did together prior. Thank you so much! "
“Thank you thank you thank you Ken! I had such an unbelievable time yesterday i am still buzzing and radiating from the experience. This workshop gave me an ability to reconnect with my artistic and creative self; it gave me hope to know that I’m in this industry for the right reasons. Your feedback and advice was clear and precise. It was the best I felt about singing in a long time. There are so many incredible tools I can now add to my arsenal thanks to this workshop.”
“Thanks once again for a terrific afternoon. I put my new found knowledge to use this evening while practicing -- wow! Simply can't thank you enough for sharing your wisdom, experiences, and perspectives.”
“Thank you so much for an amazing class…This class was exactly what I needed! Vulnerability is something I’ve struggled with for a long time but this class was just another push in the right direction to help open myself up (and) stay true to my authentic self when I am performing. I loved how we learned that our purpose…should be to tell the message that is on our hearts to our audiences…put our ego aside. It’s so cool how when you connect more to the song, your vocals sound a lot better because you’re not thinking about it as much. Overall, it was such a positive class and I’m so glad I was able to be a part of it!”
“I’m a singer whose primary focus in my career and training has been very technical, and frequently to "sing big." Although both are important and fun elements, I've always felt that I could bring my performance to the next level by letting go of some of that on a mental level and learning how to truly feel the song on a deeper level. When I learned about Ken Stacey's masterclass, I knew this could be something to help me get closer to that deeper connection. He created such a safe space for all of us, and encouraged us to be in the moment and allow ourselves to open up emotionally. It was a space where we could let go of what we "think" we're supposed to do, and focus on what's really happening in us and in the song. And, lo and behold, it often created a stronger vocal performance too! Seeing the "before and after" of our songs was eye-opening. Thank you to Ken for being so kind, giving, and supportive!”
"During the few hours of this masterclass, the emotional connection to my song was changed completely. Ken helped me relate my song to personal experiences and give it significance. I recommend this masterclass to everyone, as it greatly improved and changed the way I sing!"
"Although our daughter has been singing since she could walk, we have been reticent in placing her in any formal training outside of school activities for fear of the effect the industry could have on her childhood. Ken Stacey’s Master Class changed all of that for us. Although, at 14, she was nervous going in, she came out exuding a joy and confidence we have never seen in her, and regarding her joy for singing before. Instead of trying to change anything about our child, Ken had a way of finding the gemstones within her organic talent and celebrating all that makes her unique without trying to carve her into an existing mold. Enrolling her in Ken’s Master Class was without question, one of the healthiest and most productive decisions we have ever made for our child.!"
“This was one of the best master classes we have had!
A great balance between advice, counsel, info and performance coaching. The addition of “going deep into themselves” via breathing, mindfulness and meditation to help each student find his/her most authentic and powerful self and performance was really appreciated and supported what we teach here at LACM. WELL DONE, Ken!”
