The Wow Factor: How to Create It, Inspire It & Achieve It
 
 
 
 
 
A Comprehensive Guide for Performers
Series: Methodology Chorals
Publisher: Hal Leonard
Format: Softcover
Author: Steve Zegree
 
What is it about some musicians and performers who consistently achieve success? Are they the best performers? Did they have the best teachers? Do they have the best professional contacts and connections? Is it just coincidence? Of course not!

Dr. Steve Zegree of Western Michigan University, choral arranger and conductor of Western Michigan's Gold Company has developed this practical guide for performers, students, teachers and parents which offers fundamental philosophies and concepts that are essential to a person's growth and development and will contribute to a successful professional life in music. More than just the basics, more than a prescribed curriculum, and more than just getting in front of an audience to go through the motions of what you did in rehearsal – call it the Wow Factor – there is something for everyone in this book!

And, as a special bonus, Chapter 8 offers interviews with great performers from all facets of the music industry including: Simon Carrington, Nick Lachey, Ward Swingle, Roger Emerson, Mac Huff, Liza Minnelli and many more!

Topics include:

Chapter 1: The Wow Factor: The Framework

Chapter 2: How to Practice and Rehearse for The Wow Factor

Chapter 3: How to Prepare a Wow Audition

Chapter 4: Ifs, Ands or Buts – and Rules to Live By
