It's not everyday you're called a TRAILBLAZER... 

It's pretty awesome to be mentioned in this group of amazing women as a "trailblazer". I am proud of what WE (my team and I) were able to accomplish and I'm excited to share my new music with the world VERY soon. I'm also proud of Mickey Guyton
...she's about to be HUGE. Thank you to Grady Smith and the for the shout out. You can check out the article here: Mickey Guyton and the trailblazing women of country music

Nurture Your Passion: Musical Performance w/ Rissi Palmer

 —  —

The Studio School of Durham, 1201 Woodcroft Parkway, Durham, NC

2 Hour Workshop includes: • short performance from Rissi • Q&A • one on one work sessions in a classroom setting (at least 8 minutes of one on one) • tackling trouble spots vocally • connection to a song emotionally • stage presence and microphone technique • song critique (for songwriting)

Having studied voice for 18 years under industry veterans Louis Valenzi (Broadway and television actor) and Robin Brown (accomplished vocalist, vocal coach to Destiny’s Child, Solange, Usher, etc.), Rissi Palmer has partnered what she has learned from her esteemed instructors and her years of touring and recording to create a voice curriculum for students who are interested in performing as well as singing. She is passionate about helping her students find and develop their own unique sound by tailoring her lessons to the student’s age and experience level. In addition to using traditional vocal warm ups, exercises, and breathing techniques in her curriculum, students are encouraged to choose the music they are interested in. While she doesn’t believe in traditional voice lessons for any child under the age of 13, Ms. Palmer believes that it’s never to early for a student to develop ear training and learn to sing tunefully. Since writing her first song at 6 and receiving her first publishing deal at the age of 19, Rissi has taken her years of songwriting in Nashville and New York City and created a curriculum for students who are interested in lyric and music composition. She is passionate about helping her students find and develop their own unique voice and style by teaching the differences and similarities of various genres (i.e. Country, R&B, Pop, Rock, Indie, etc), encouraging students keep a journal, and using various exercises to dissect and learn the techniques of great songwriters of yesterday and today.

*This workshop is designed for teens and adults ages 14+
