Singers will study and prepare works from the musical theatre repertoire.

Using a “master class” setting with constructive critique from the instructor and members of the class, students will delve into character, style and text, as well as how composers reflect these elements in the accompaniment. The class will culminate in a performance of the works studied in class at the end of each semester. Excellent for students preparing for college or other auditions.
