Audition Master Class

Musical Theatre Song Interpretation Master Class

The first edition in our Master Class series is centered around musical theatre, focusing on character and song interpretation. Students will prepare a 32-bar song and Lied Learning Online Teaching Artists will provide feedback and coach students during one of three 75 minute Zoom sessions being offered between 1-5:15 PM. Students will receive feedback and coaching on their 32-bar cut, learn how to break their song into acting beats, discover and develop a unique performance style, build self-confidence, and observe and learn from peers.
