QLD Event: Broadway - Musical Theatre Intensive with Kate Schirmer

July 17, 2017

Musical theatre has changed a lot since its early days in the 1800s and especially over the last five decades. For example, in the sixties, musical theatre performers were either dancers who sang or singers who danced. Now, to be successful, a singer needs to be able to move from one style of music to another, including from legit (contemporary and classical), belt, rock, character and patter songs. The more adaptable to the styles, the more commercially successful the performer will be - but it has to be in a vocally healthy way, or it won’t last. A big ask, not just for the performer but also for the one who guides them through this labyrinth of technical challenges – the singing teacher!

In this intensive session, the different stylistic expectations of all Musical Theatre styles will be explored and Good Singing principles applied in a Masterclass setting. In addition, audition techniques will be discussed to assist teachers and singers with current industry expectations.
