In this class students will explore three different assigned musical theatre selections and work on them in a dramatic context. Each student will work on their song in front of the class 3 times. Students will learn to develop a character within the context of their song and be able to identify the obstacle, objective, tactics and stakes. Vocally, students will work on breath control, quality of tone and use of the voice in different registers in relationship to the character. Physically, students will explore the brain to body connection, learning to sing from a neutral, unaffected physical place. The primary focus however, is to learn to integrate these three skills.
