THE “MUSIC” OF MUSICAL THEATRE with Bradon Magid
Age Range: 16+
Day(s)/Time: Thursday, 7:15 - 8:45pm
Class Dates: July 9, 16, 23, 30
What does “belting” mean? What is that symbol in my sheet music? Who is this composer? What is this musical even about? Participants in this class will engage with musical theatre songs on a deep level by refining vocal technique, unpacking musical scores and concepts, and discussing relevant musical theatre history. Through solos and group numbers, in this class we will learn to sing with greater knowledge and deeper meaning. The class will culminate in a final digital showcase of conversation and performance.
