Classes will focus on music theatre voice usage and the development of technique, including breath support, pitch, range and tone through an exploration of large and small ensemble music theatre songs. Later in the semester song character and storytelling will be addressed through an intensive block of combined singing and acting classes focusing on large ensemble singing, where individual creative licence will be balanced against the need to blend musically and support the story.

Intended learning outcomes

Upon completion of this subject students will:
• exhibit a developing understanding of the vocal technical requirements of a specific range of music theatre voice sounds;
• display development in the ability to musically harmonise, phrase and blend within the given context of story, character and musical style.

Generic skills

Upon completion of this subject students will:
• exhibit developing knowledge of the key basic components of music theatre performance;
• have the capacity to participate fully in collaborative learning and to confront unfamiliar problems;
• exhibit a developing capacity for self-reflection, analysis and critical thinking.
