Drama workshop with Lucienne Camilleri

On Saturday 18th February I had the pleasure of welcoming Lucienne Camilleri to my studio where she conducted a drama workshop for my students. Over the years Lucienne has contributed to the theatre as an actor and choreographer. She has also co-directed and directed several musical productions. For the past twelve years she has been tutoring acting skills and technique and is now employed by De La Salle College.

Drama is important in singing because expression is always needed to engage an audience. During this workshop the students learnt to use facial expression, their body and their voice to enhance their performance. They worked on posture and diction, and also learnt how to do a different type of warm-up to loosen up facial muscles and to open up all their resonators.

The drama workshop given by Lucienne Camilleri was something new and refreshing for me – learning that in a performance the voice is not everything. She explained how body language, facial expression and the voice have to move hand in hand to give the best performance one can give. She explained and gave us examples how to express emotions in our voice and face. I also learnt that sometimes the simpler your movements are the more you give to the audience. It was an amazing experience and I hope that there will be a next one in the near future. A big thanks goes to our teacher Claire who gives us these opportunities to learn different ways of becoming better performers.

It was definitely an eye-opener! Lucienne gave us some wonderful performance tools to build confidence and really get to the core of a song’s essence. Thank you Claire and Lucienne.
