Do you speak ‘music’?
Have you ever dreamed of just looking at a music sheet and being able to sing it straight away?
Well, this course is for you.
Music is a language.
As a child, our speaking skills (vocabulary, flexibility and general culture) developped mostly from reading. That’s how we develop our language.
Music is the same; the best way to master it is when you are able to READ IT.
Sight singing improves a performer’s understanding of a song, its melodic prosody, musical structure and development. Sight singing improves pitch, rhythm accuracy and makes those ‘god-damn’ harmonies much easier to nail.
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 30 weeks course, specially designed for beginners, intermediates and advanced readers, students learn the most essential points of music theory and train their brain, eyes and voice to sing an unknown melody just by reading its music sheet.
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.
