Commitment- Confidence- Creativity

Musical Theatre Studios at Hartt provides a process-focused experience where each student is inspired to grow into a confident performer.  By breaking down musical theatre to its core components, students have an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of musical theatre and establish concentrated skills that can be applied to full-scale musicals. We strive to prepare each student for however the arts will blossom in their lives: educated audience member, passionate avocational performer, or dedicated professional performing artist.

Musical Theatre Studio I

smtijr 2 girls

For Students in Grades 4-6
Mondays, 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.

Instructor: Robin Blauers

Musical Theatre Studio I will focus on breaking down the pieces of musical theatre and building students confidence on stage. Through individualized curriculum based on monologues and vocal solos, students will focus on vocal technique, poise and stage presence, performance style, and character development. Our work will be shared at the end of our final session, and this sharing time will be open for viewing by family and friends.

Before our first class: Students should come prepared with a section of their favorite song to share with the class as well as something to speak- this could range from a short poem to a descriptive monologue about anything that they love to talk about: family, a trip, or even their favorite food.  This will provide the instructor and opportunity to chose material for class that suits each student perfection.

Dress Code: Come in clothes you are comfortable to move in.

Musical Theatre Studio II will focus on ensemble musical
theatre work. Curriculum includes weekly vocal technique, text analysis,
diction preparation, character development, choreography, and musical
theatre history (so that our ensemble piece may be understood in the
grand tradition of musical theatre). Our class work centers on the
preparation of a single ensemble number from a musical show. Style
and period of the piece will alternate with each 8-week session. Each
student will be assigned a solo within the grand piece. Our work will be
shared at the end of our final session, and this sharing time will be open
for viewing by family and friends.
