This course continues to refine the skills learned in Vocal Performance, polish material gathered in Audition Repertoire. It works in close conjunction with the Audition Master class to enable actors to make smart choices for specific vocal auditions, make informed and practical acting/vocal choices when preparing new material and to support each artist in creating a well-rounded, well-prepared audition book to serve the performer for auditions in a variety of musical genres. Students utilize skills from Vocal Technique and Private Voice in presenting both their signing and acting skills. Some of these skills include: breath coordination, alignment and release of tension, even registration, discrete shapes for vowels and consonants, arc of melodic line, dynamic contrast, skillful use of legitimate/mix/belt, timbre contrast to support the acting journey in a song.
