TheoryWorks II: The Callback
TheoryWorks II focuses on singing in tight harmonies and creating your own audition cuts in this 6 week class. In the final class, actors learn all 3 vocal lines from a cut of "You Could Drive a Person Crazy" and sing for Broadway MD Andrea Grody (TOOTISE) in mixed groups.
Time & Location
Oct 07, 2022, 5:30 PM EDT – Nov 11, 2022, 7:30 PM EST
Spectra Music Studios, 356 W 40th St 4th Floor, New York, NY 10018, USA
If you sing, chances are good that you have what I call a "sticky ear."
There's a good chance you already absorb melodies almost instantly, which is great -- unless you accidentally absorb it wrong. Then the effort of fixing those mistakes and holding a tricky harmony can be much more difficult.
Join us for a 6-week "blended" (both online and in-person) session on harmony, key signatures, scales, ear training, and form. In a flipped classroom model, students first learn the material for "homework" from their computer in our online course, and then meet weekly with a TheoryWorks coach one-on-one to review that week's material and assignment over Zoom.
By the end of class, students will learn how harmony is organized, have mastered a packet of ear training exercises to revisit as needed, understand how to build their own audition cuts, and be fully armed with the tips and tricks they need to feel confident in a music rehearsal.
In the final class, each actor will be asked to learn all 3 harmony lines from "You Could Drive a Person Crazy" in small groups to test blend and harmony abilities for Broadway music director Andrea Grody (TOOTSIE, THE BAND'S VISIT).
