SIGHT SINGING COURSE

One difference between Musical Theatre performers is between the ones
who can sight sing or the ones who can’t.

Sight Singing makes the perfomer’s job (and the Musical Director’s) much easier. Sight singing allows performers to ‘get their songs’ faster and better, especially when it comes to singing harmonies.

As a child, your speaking skills (vocabulary, flexibility and general culture) developped mostly from reading. That’s how we develop our language.
Music is a language. The best way to master it is when you are able to READ IT.

Along the ability to read and sing music on sight, Sight singing helps the performer to improve their understanding of the song, its melodic prosody, musical structure and development.

In semi-professional and professional productions, directors often say that, given the choice, they always prefer to cast ‘a reader over a voice’. The ability to sight sing increases the performer’s chance to be cast in a (paid) production and can make the difference between casting you and another.

In this 6 weeks workshop, specially designed for beginners and intermediates, you will learn the most essential points of music theory and train your brain, eyes and voice to sing an unknown melody just by reading its music sheet.
