"Adam is amazing! He's as capable as he is caring. He was encouraging while still pushing us to the next level. He's an artist, a great teacher, and a wonderful person."
"I learned a lot about the creative process through this class, and how to better prepare for public speaking engagements going forward."
"The diversity of people, stories and ideas is a truly New York experience. Adam takes you on a collective and individual journey of discovery that should not be missed. With empathy, encouragement and an honest belief in each person and their stories he helps the shyest of turtles emerge from their shell."
”Adam really helped us better understand the process of telling stories. Atmosphere was very relaxed and supportive, and was fun to meet other people from all different places/backgrounds. I’m not a very confident person in front of lots of new people, but Adam and the other participants were so nice I felt well at ease throughout.”
“Adam’s guidance on what makes a story work breaks it down into do-able steps, and after every person tries it out, he gives great feedback on the stories -- identifying the parts that really work and why.”
I will teach you how to take personal experiences from your life and create stories that are universal and identifiable to an audience. You'll be blown away at how engaging your personal stories can be! Whether you're a Moth Slam Champion in the making, a writer seeking to fine-tune your narrative skills, or someone who wants the confidence and ability to get in front of people and be heard -- this class will help.
In this class, you will learn the basic elements of telling a narrative story, how to take a crowd by surprise and make them care, how to be real and truthful on stage, and how to discover and communicate the real meaning behind your experience. Classes will include verbal and written exercises, examples of performances from some of the finest storytellers, and various techniques and approaches to prepare yourself for a performance of your story.
What you'll get out of the class: at least one polished, six-to-eight minute story -- which could be a Moth Story Slam winner, the beginning of a one-person show, or a personal essay -- and the fundamentals needed to develop future stories. The class concludes with a graduation performance where you will perform your personal story in front of a live, super-supportive audience!
