Actor & Musical Theater 1

Spring 2019

Taught By: Lynn Baker

Section: A

CRN: 3827

Credits: 2

This class will focus the young actor, regardless of his/her previous experience, on the production of vocally healthy singing. Basic technical concepts such as efficient use of breath and breath support, vibrato, vowel and consonant production, and the elimination of physical tension will be addressed. Students will be taught useful warm-up routines and methods of effective, efficient individual practice. Through weekly in-class coaching, the students will refine important elements of performing vocal music, using their developing technique as a tool for expressivity, musicianship, language, poise and consistency. Students will work toward the goal of discovering their individual identities as singing actors, as indicated by vocal contours and color, and then as explored by way of repertoire. Solo as well as ensemble music will be assigned and studied. Most class sessions will be comprised of a short discussion segment on a relevant principle, followed by an intensive singing and coaching session. There will be singing in every class. Co-taught by Tonna Miller-Valles.

Assigned songs will be drawn from the "legit" musical theater, jazz standard and American Songbook repertoire. Registration is by permission and/or audition.
