2: Attend a STAR TRAINING WORKSHOP
The main purpose of the artist workshops is to review and explore the principles within “The 10 Commandments of the Stage” book. Each participating artist will perform two minutes for the SOK Solutions’ representative and receive feedback on their performance, in an effort to reach the next level. For artists who do not have a mentor, during this period, one will be assigned. At the end of the workshop, artists will be invited to go to the next step of the process—THE SOK TALENT SHOWCASES.

3: Perform in a SOK STAR SHOWCASE.
Through SOK Stars’ exclusive talent showcases, unsigned artists will be invited to compete for a chance to be involved with the SOK School Tours’ team. In addition to being able to hone their skills thru continuous practice, participating artists will receive the added benefit of performing for a live audience. This approach serves to build confidence, invigorate the support of the community and provide the artist with a realistic view of his or her talent level. From each show, SOK Representatives will identify and choose artists that display the potential for being future headline acts. This practice occurs for both the Knowledge Fest Concerts, as well as the SOK Five and Fun School Tours.
