Activities at Atsitsa Bay, Greece

Delivering a Song with Luke Meredith

Sat 1 - Sat 8 Jul 2023

Delivering A Song

Performing a song is more than just remembering where to match the notes to the words. Sometimes it’s not even about that! Learn all the tricks of the trade, finding the sense of a song and the best way to deliver that to your audience.

We’ll cover dramatic and vocal techniques and how to combine the two. We’ll be looking at comedy songs, ballads and uptempo numbers and how to bring out the best in them – and in you!

Whether you want to wow them on stage or just be more confident when you do your turn at the party, this course will help you on your way. There will be solo singing within the group and plenty of tutor feedback, with a mini-showcase at the end hosted by yours truly.

Cabaret: A Beginner’s Guide

What is cabaret? There are so many versions of it in people’s heads. To some it’s Liza Minnelli on a backwards chair, to others it’s the burlesque act between starter and main. This course will do its best to convey the myriad worlds contained within that one word. We’ll examine what makes cabaret unique among other forms of entertainment and use the talents within the group to create a show of our own.

We’ll cover exploring your style and stage persona; researching new material; presentation; and rapport and interaction with your audience.

Just about any talent can be turned to cabaret, and this could be your first step.

About Luke Meredith

Luke Meredith, or Mister Meredith, is a cabaret entertainer and compère, and is at the forefront of the revival in piano singalong nights. His singalongs have featured on the BBC, Channel 5 and London Live and, as well as the many live gigs (safety measures permitting), he is now working with Intergenerational Music Making to bring them to the online world. 

His cabaret work has taken him to almost every London venue, including Proud Cabaret, Royal Vauxhall Tavern, Cafe de Paris, Fontaine's and Leicester Square Theatre, and to high profile theatres around the UK from Newcastle Theatre Royal down to Kings Theatre in Portsmouth via Birmingham Old Rep. His solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe have gathered four and five star reviews, while he continues to pack houses with his variety show Magic Faraway Cabaret, now in its 10th year. 

Luke taught singing at City Lit on the accredited drama courses and the open programme 2009-2018.  He has a BA Hons in Music Drama and Dance from Birmingham University and a PTLLS and CTLLS(1) from City Lit, and continues to research and develop new vocal teaching techniques. 

“One of the greatest cabaret performers of his generation” Scotsgay 

“A subversive compère who takes pride in getting the City boys a little hot under the collar“ The Telegraph 

“Great fun” The Sun
