What will I learn?

CLASSES

Below you will find a list of the types of classes and modules that have been on offer at the Academy.

DEPARTMENT CLASSES AND ACTIVITIES

Singing

You will have a 60-minute individual singing lesson and a 40-minute individual repertoire coaching session each week. In addition, there are group coaching sessions, ensemble singing projects and audition technique classes. Informed by the latest physiology research, we explore all aspects of your singing voice.

Acting

These classes and tutorials provide a supportive environment in which to grow and practise your skills as a company. We cover improvisation, acting through song, text work, sight-reading, building a character, the rehearsal process, audition work and more. You will apply your learning in the rehearsal and performance of scenes as well as whole plays, musicals and revues.

Spoken Word

These classes cover voice science and its practical application to speaking and singing, and include a weekly 20-minute individual tutorial. We cover such components as speech and accent, text and language including Shakespearean verse, and vocal health. The integration of the speaking voice with the singing voice is fundamental to the programme and directly supports the work of the singing teachers.

Integration of Acting and Singing

In this weekly class you will be encouraged to match your vocal quality and texture to the acting demands of a song, and to develop your individuality, with a particular emphasis on extended voice technique. Audition repertoire, strategies and technique are practised throughout the year, as well as the assembling of a strong audition repertoire ‘bible’. DANCE The dance course concentrates on three vital elements: musicality, empathy and technical ability. You will learn to replicate dance combinations demonstrated by a choreographer or teacher. We aim to give you confidence in dance, and the ability to translate musicality and style to the appropriate task.
