Do you want to be able to sing to the standard of a West End or Broadway star? Learn with an award winning singer.
This is a course for you if you love musical theatre and also want a robust singing course that will stretch you beyond your current vocal capabilities. As well as being focused on music theatre, this course is a bootcamp for all vocalists.
You will learn to be a versatile music theatre singer by studying the singing techniques needed to hit the high notes from the major epochs of musical theatre, including music hall and operetta, Tin Pan Alley and early jazz show tunes (Gershwin, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin etc), classic Broadway music theatre (Rogers and Hammerstein, Kern, Rogers and Hart etc), 70s & 80s music theatre (Andrew Lloyd Webber, Boublil and Schönberg etc) and contemporary music theatre (Schwartz, Menken etc).
In each section, there is a brief introduction to the era and its composers plus an explanation of how the singing techniques of each era developed. We then dive into practical, technical exercises to help you master those techniques. We will look at vocal skills such as:
Mastering voice qualities to make the right sound for each show and character discussed
Dealing with the break in the passagio
Intercostal lateral breathing (required in music theatre exams)
The course will help you to ace musical theatre auditions and exams, help improve your vocal skills in a demanding and competitive field of singing and enhance your overall knowledge of music theatre in a way that will impress an examiner/audition panel. We will also have fun!
You can also send mp3s of your singing for feedback.
