In music class, students, vocalists and non-vocalists, will explore the essential skills they’ll need as actors who sing. Sight singing, interval recognition, ear training and elements of music theory will give students a sold foundation in the musical arts. Students will collaborate on devised original pieces, which find their basis in musical improvisation and exploration of the voice.
Through explorations of movement, improvisation, and collaboration, students will discover the unique voice that lives in each of them. As they progress, students will apply their new skills to text ranging from classical to contemporary. Additionally, classes will focus on inhabiting a neutral body and an imaginary body, voice and speech, emotional recall and psychophysical gesture.
Rooted in classical ballet technique, students will explore a variety of styles including modern, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip-hop, musical theater and tap. Students will be encouraged to perform as well as create their own pieces through improvisation and peer collaboration. Areas of focus will be proper technique, terminology, musicality and interpretation/ inspiration.
