Every student has a solo, which may require other students to perform supporting acting or singing roles in addition to their own solo’s.  At the conclusion of the week, students perform their musical for family and friends in an external location complete with costumes and lighting.

Summary: Standing in front of an audience and singing your song with perfect pitch, tone and timing is one thing, but telling a story and holding the audience in the palm of your hand is another! Imagine how you would feel if you went to your favorite artists concert and all they did was stand there and sing, with no movement, no emotion and no involvement of the audience!  You’d probably want your money back! Singing with good technique is just one of the many things you need to master to be a stand out performer. Spend a week with us, and we’ll arm you with a solid set of skills to help you on your way! Each student is provided with a DVD of their ‘before’ and ‘after’ performance.
