Description

Class Experience

Once students are enrolled in my ongoing classes, they will learn vocal technique, exercises to work on improving their technique and acting skills to enhance their performance and build their character in the songs they choose. Each song will be staged and learners will learn about stage terminology (Upstage, stage left, right wing etc.). They will also learn about the musicals their chosen songs are from, when they were written, by whom etc. and of course, the plot. More advanced learners will learn about certain musical composers and eras of musical theatre on Broadway and London's West End.
In future ongoing classes, homework will usually be to either start learning their new song, research the show their song is from or start answering their character questions (e.g. What is the location of this song?).
For this taster class, the learner must think of a song they like to sing! Once enrolled in ongoing classes, each student must have a notebook for notes at the end of every class and a device to play backing tracks once they reach this stage.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Exams:

When students enrol in my ongoing class, depending on their location it is possible to take graded exams in MT singing through the board of LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) but there is never any pressure for a student to take an exam!

As you would expect, the grades get more challenging the higher you go (Grade 8 is the maximum before Diploma). For a beginner wanting to enter their Grade 1 exam, students will be expected to perform 2 contrasting musical theatre songs and answer 2-3 questions about the character they are playing in each song.

I work with the students for as long as they need on exam repertoire until they feel 100% ready to take their exam. Taking graded exams gives a huge sense of achievement to students and marks a learner's ability and skill level in their craft.

Non syllabus:
Students not wishing to take an exam will perform an informal assessment and I will provide a progress report for parents.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
