EXPANDING YOUR MUSICAL THEATER REPERTOIRE ONLINE
Explore new musical theater repertoire for your next audition!!
Feel like your knowledge of musical theatre is limited to the last decade or two, but unsure where to start looking for new repertoire? Looking to build your first repertoire book? This is the class for you! Students will be introduced to selections of songs from musical theatre’s inception in the 1920’s all the way through present day. In addition to significant shows and songs we’ll 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. We’ll also spend time talking about creating an audition book and considering how auditions should be approached. 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 musical theater, or for any vocal students planning to audition for special programs, school shows/groups, or universities.
Starting with an overview of each student’s aims for the course and an overview of musical theater development, each week will include an exploration of musicals, composers, and performers. Technical aspects, including how to choose a 16-32 bar cut, where to find music, and using a recording vs. a pianist will also be discussed.
New and Returning students are welcome! If you’ve taken and enjoyed this class in the past you’ll be happy to know that the sheer volume of musical theatre songs allows for some new material each session even as we revisit those songs that never go out of style!
