"Thought provoking, challenging, informative, inspiring, enjoyable" - Helena McCrisken
Does this video training fit your needs?
We designed this whole workshop for singers and teachers who want to find out the HOW and the WHY of musical theatre sounds and performance styles.
I'm experienced in classical techniques. Why would I watch this video training?
More and more students want to sing in musicals, and contemporary musical theatre has many music influences. As a responsible teacher, you need to know how to guide them safely through the many different vocal styles and setups. Both of us are experienced in classical vocal training - we know which techniques transfer well and which don't. We were invited to co-author the chapter on pedagogy in different sung genres for the Oxford Handbook of Singing - that makes us the expert's experts. We'll show you how to use your knowledge of music and structure to analyse and teach musical theatre songs authentically.
Who are we?
We are Dr Gillyanne Kayes and Jeremy Fisher. We've travelled around the world sharing our knowledge and techniques, and we have clients in the US, Canada, South America, the Far East, Australasia and across Europe. We've written bestselling singing books, created sell-out training DVDs and launched a series of professional development Webinars online. We're well-known for our diagnostic skills and our ability to resolve technical issues quickly.
Watch two expert trainers work together to help you understand the what, the why and the when of musical theatre vocal and performance techniques
"Vital for anyone wanting to pursue a career in musical theatre; either performing or teaching it" - Yvette Cummings
"It was a fantastic day. I learnt a lot and can't wait to share it. Excited to go back to my students with some different ideas to try" - Cynthia Ryder
I teach contemporary singing styles, why would I watch this video training?
Although musicals today are influenced by contemporary song styles, putting them in the context of a theatre piece changes the way you sing them. Gillyanne and Jeremy take you through exercises to discover how text works in a theatre setting, and how to morph the songs you already know into a character piece.
I need Continuing Professional Development training points. Why would I watch this video training?
Many teachers are required to provide evidence of Continuing Professional Development in their field, but authorised CPD courses for singing teachers are rare. Since May 2016 Vocal Process has been an authorised Continuing Professional Development Centre. This Mastering Musical Theatre video training carries 5 CPD points ratified by the CPD Standards Office.
