Performing the Song

October 1st - November 19

This 8-week class will focus on bridging the gap between the singer's natural gifts and the intent of the songwriter. Really acting the piece, with a secondary concentration on vocal technique. This class reminds the student that a great singer must have all the same techniques as a great actor - clear objectives, emotional connection and a unique point of view.

Adding Singing to your repertoire will open up many more audition opportunities as the Musical genre continues to grow in Los Angeles, from My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend to LaLa Land...this is a skill that will continue to grow in demand.
