There are few classical teachers who don't have to turn their hand to teaching repertoire they have not trained in and are unfamiliar with, both in terms of sound and technique. It can be daunting to be presented with music where any common ground is hard to find. This is especially true for musical theatre. Contemporary musical theatre encompasses an enormous range of musical and vocal style from pop to rock to ‘traditional’ MT as well as new musicals such as Dear Evan Hansen, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie and Six, each with their own distinctive sound. Where does a teacher from a classical background start? 

The day will include:

  • Can classical singing and musical theatre co-exist?
  • Is classical technique transferable to musical theatre?
  • Is Belting actually safe?
  • Key differences and how to identify them 
  • Breathing and Support
  • Q&As

Anne-Marie is delighted to welcome her long time friend and colleague, Mary King as co-presenter on this course. They have collaborated on many productions and currently are both members of the musical theatre vocal faculty at the Royal Academy of Music, London.

Suitable for: People new to the Estill Model; those familiar with the Model, looking for clarification and consolidation; singers and teachers; students and professionals.
