TheatrePEI’s Voice Workshop: Bringing Songs to Life - Storytelling in Musical Theatre

At the centre of every song is a beating heart: a character, a mood, a desire, a story. As singers, we must move beyond the sound of our voices, our tensions, our anxieties, our egos to illuminate the truth in the lyrics and have fun!

This is a course for singers - beginner to advanced who wish to gain confidence, improve vocal technique and explore musical text in a deeper and more meaningful way.

Classes will involve:

    •  simple physical warm-ups

    •  stretching and relaxation exercises

    •  Alexander technique

    •  individual and group vocal instruction

    •  lyric analysis

    •  exploration of musical theatre composers, shows and styles

    •  musical theatre appreciation and history

Other realms of music may be touched on as well.

An accompanist will be provided so that songs may be presented in a safe, fun and supportive group setting.  You’ll have a chance to learn by doing and also by watching your classmates. Please prepare 2-4 songs and bring sheet music in your key to the first class. 

Additional songs may be assigned over the course of the program.  If you have any questions or need song suggestions, feel free to email me at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
