Miss Bean will work with each student on audition technique and song interpretation in this special one-day master class. We will focus on giving actors the opportunity to bring their audition and performance skills to the next level and how to better connect to their audition material and add their own personal style to their performances. Students will break down their song material with one on one coaching in a class setting. Finally, students will take part in a Q&A with Miss Bean and the Broadway Workshop team.
Students will need two (2) musical theatre or Pop/Rock audition songs in the correct key for this workshop. We will only be focusing on ONE 16/32 bar musical cut in this class. We ask that students have a second song to be used as back up. Please do not sing from Broadway musicals currently running (Dear Evan Hansen, Hamilton, Wicked, Waitress, etc.). You should be totally comfortable with your song choice so we can allow you to work on the song in a new way. Music should be in a binder and clearly marked for our accompanist. There is no dance component to this class.
THIS IS AN ADVANCED LEVEL CLASS. Students should be prepared for honest feedback and be ready to work in depth on their song selections. Students should have a high level of vocal training and have professional aspirations.
Class is limited to 16 students.
