Eric’s philosophy has always been that singing is a lifelong practice. Whether you’re a dancer who’s ready to sing more, or a seasoned professional with roles already under your belt, the art of technique, phrasing, and storytelling through song is a craft that must be maintained. Each of these relaxed (but focused) group classes come in three acts. The first is always an extensive breathing and vocal warmup that stretches and expands both the physical and mental relationship to your voice. The second act is ever changing and trains you on various important music theatre topics like holding harmony, reading music, talking to accompanists, finding and cutting material, musical vocabulary, finding vocal range, and acting through song. And finally the third act of the class will focus on individual’s needs in a ‘masterclass-style’ format. Whether it’s call back material you need to hear with an accompanist or a new song you’ve found you want to try, this time will be evenly distributed for one-on-one attention as others observe and learn in an encouraging atmosphere.
