Contemporary Musical Theatre Vocal Techniques with Karen Pauley

The breadth of musical genres represented in contemporary musicals is vast but there are versatile vocal techniques that can be used across them all. Techniques that allow you to have sound that is consistent across your vocal range and that allow you to securely sing the impressive high notes that are so prevalent in recent musicals.

Day 1

In the first workshop we will cover:

  • Introduction to contemporary styles

  • Consistency throughout the range of the song

  • High notes - mix / belt / falsetto

  • Contemporary stylisms

  • Vocal health and athletic techniques

Day 2 (limit of 12 students to present their songs, but it will be possible to observe)

After a warm-up you will be able to bring the song you want to sing and there will be time for you to receive feedback and to work on your vocal technique. The song does not need to be polished or finished and can be a work in progress. We will finish with an overview of the techniques that we have observed.

When: Saturday, August 14th 1pm-4pm & August 21st 1pm-5pm (JST)

Where: Zoom meeting

Tickets: ¥2000 Reserve your spot HERE!

Materials needed:

A device on which you can access Zoom. A musical theatre song that you want to work on. You can sing the song a cappella or play a backing track.
