OUR APPROACH

Our Musical Theatre Intensive courses are taught by two teachers in order to maximise your learning experience. We will also have a masterclass session which will be our only opportunity to look at solos. The course is group lead so this is a great way for you to get specific feedback relating to vocal technique and storytelling.

Musical theatre classes are taught in a fun and supportive environment so don’t worry if you feel a bit nervous. We pride ourselves in our community values. We do not require you to be a seasoned performer, all we ask for is a positive attitude and energy to help make the classes as fun as possible!
