Singing for Musicals

Music H&S - Humanities & Sciences

Course Description

Do you love singing in musicals? Do you know how to sing in musicals? This course provides training in vocal technique and acting for students interested in performing musical theater. Students will learn about the physical process of singing, including posture, breath support, and vocal exercises. They will incorporate vocal technique with the study of phrasing in different styles of Broadway repertoire, and apply both to the art of acting the song. Through understanding vocal technique, students will become more confident and joyful performers. Admission to the course is by audition or permission of the instructor. Due to the COVID-19 situation, Singing for Musicals classes will be taught online during Spring 2021. As this can pose a problem with students in various time zones and internet arrangements, the instructor will contact all waitlisted students with more detailed information regarding video auditions and a questionnaire prior to the first class.
