IN PERSON OR VIA SKYPE
Fundamentals of Healthy Singing
To me, vocal health is paramount. I start every coaching with a warm-up, and I provide you with a series of exercises that will ensure you can sing at your top potential, whether it's eight shows a week or at a quick 16-bar audition.
MUSIC STRUCTURE & INTERPRETATION
How Music Informs Character
We'll study the structure of the music, musical motifs, melodic lines, dynamics, articulation and more to help us understand how the composer defines character.
LYRIC & BOOK INTERPRETATION
How Lyrics & Story Shape Character
We'll study the use of lyric rhythm, rhyme, vowels, and structure, as well as learn about character arcs, and where the song falls in context with the story...and most of all: why it is vital to communicate through song.
