Actor & Musical Theater 1

Spring 2021

Taught By: Lynn Baker and Tonna Miller-Valles

Section: A

CRN: 7558

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 coaching, students will refine important elements of vocal music performance, 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 range, vocal contours and color, and then as explored by way of repertoire. The class is a practicum, and is co-taught by a voice teacher and a voice coach. Class sessions will alternate weekly between a group voice lesson and individual song coaching. Assigned songs will be drawn from the "legit" musical theater, jazz standard and American Songbook repertoire. By instructor permission with taped audition.
