Expanding Your Musical Theater Repertoire Online

Summer 2021 Online Programs Now Open!

EXPANDING YOUR MUSICAL THEATER REPERTOIRE ONLINE

 

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Feel like your knowledge of musical theatre is limited to the last decade or two, but unsure where to start looking for new repertoire? Want to update your knowledge and also learn some new songs? This is the class for you. Students will be introduced to selections from musical theatre’s inception in the 1920’s all the way through to the present day. In addition to significant shows and songs, we will also touch on the important composers and performers who have helped develop the genre. Repertoire will be selected primarily to aid in giving students an expanded range of age-appropriate audition material that will showcase their vocal range and personal strengths.

Each day will include time spent actively learning audition cuts for 2 songs—by the end of the week, students will have as many as 8 new songs in their repertoire. We’ll also spend time discussing how to create an audition book, how to combat audition anxiety, and how to prepare for and approach auditions. Students will be provided with a curated list of age-appropriate selections for all voice parts, and a suggested filmography to encourage continued growth in their own time. This informative, animated program is perfect for students with an interest in singing and musical theater, and for any vocal students planning to audition for special programs, school shows/groups, or universities.

Note: Openings are limited, so early registration is encouraged.
