Do you want to front a rock band? Solo with an a cappella group? Sing R&B songs? You need high-quality music and vocal training, with an emphasis on musical theater, to give you an advantage. Many genres of music have won the Tony Award for Best Musical – Rent (rock), Kinky Boots (pop), The Band’s Visit (Arabian), and the latest winner Hadestown (folk opera) - all made by songwriters who adapt their sound to the musical's storytelling style.
What is the advantage of studying musical theater?
When you are telling your own story in a song, your voice connects with your mind, body, and spirit. And you can then take your story into any style of music.
