High School Voice (Musical Theater)
Applications remain open until all spots are filled - Apply Now!
The inaugural year of the Musical Theater program is for high school singers ages 14 and older interested in pursuing studies in musical theater in college.
The focus of our training is to provide students with the tools to be the best singing actor they can be. Classes provide skills training in singing, dancing, acting, and how to tell a story through song. Each student receives two private voice lessons per week, in addition to other ensemble coachings. Extensive training will be provided on acting the song, which marries vocal technique with acting intentions.
Each student will also work on a 16-bar audition cut of a solo song and work with partners in duets, trios, or quartets. Dance classes will introduce vocabulary used in audition situations, and emphasize using the body rhythmically. Select pieces will be shared in a showcase on the final day of the session with other BMC students, families, and friends.
The daily schedule of classes may include:
- musical theatre and dance
- vocal technique and style
- stage combat
- sight reading and ensemble singing
- music theory
- yoga and mindfulness
- masterclasses in audition techniques and the profession
