Musical Theatre

Who is it for?
This class welcomes anyone who is enthusiastic about musicals, acting, singing and movement.

A typical session:
After a discussion and introduction of weekly aims the students take part, and often take the lead, in a physical, vocal and mental warm up. This will usually introduce a new singing technique and include breathing, different voice qualities and range work. All students work at their own pace and level. The group perform a chosen song to the other students at break time, which encourages self-evaluation and confidence in performance.
The second half of the session is reserved for smaller group performances and the chance to improve through peer evaluation.

What will I learn?
Students will be given the opportunity to learn about singing and performance technique including breathing, posture, voice quality, musical concepts, developing confidence through performance, evaluating self and others, being part of an audience and the fun to be found in performing!
