TESTING, TESTING… DOES YOUR MIC TECHNIQUE NEED WORK?
MIC CHECK! ARE YOU CONFIDENT ON THE MIC?
“It’s not what you say, it’s the way that you say it.”
We think you’ll agree that the microphone is one of the main tools of our trade. Perhaps even the most powerful! But are you really clued up on how best to use it? Do you know how to deliver an important message while commanding your room and retaining your character? This relaxed full-day workshop – the second in our series of Pro Mobile Learning Workshops – won’t just make you more confident in your scripting and technique but will explore the technical side of microphones too.
With just 16 places available, this is an intimate but information-packed workshop that combines technical and practical elements. Come with an open mind and we promise you’ll go home with a ton of takeaways!
As a mobile DJ you may not formally script what you say on the mic, but it's still important to think about what you say before you say it. Scripting doesn't necessarily mean writing down what you're going to say word for word, it's about planning what you say to make sure that the right information is conveyed to your audience effectively.
Good scripting isn’t as simple as you might think. In fact, it’s an art form. In this intimate group workshop, we’ll help you master the art of script-writing and reading, offering up loads of tips and tricks to make your script work seamless!
Much of our time together will be spent learning how to write a concise, effective script, analysing the words we use and giving them maximum effect. Once we’re done, you and your close circle of fellow attendees will have the confidence and know-how to make your next event a resounding success.
Alongside script-writing and delivery, we’ll also work on mic technique, making sure you know how to deliver a powerful message to your audience. To do this, we’ll explore some unique and interactive methods for honing your techniques.
