This is a 16-class session.

Students seeking a payment installment plan may email the HCA: info@hopartscenter.org.

Students should be comfortable singing and performing in public, and will gain insight and experience in developing a character and delivering a compelling performance in a range of styles. We will explore solo performances and duets. The class will work toward a showcase for the final class; however, the emphasis for this class is the learning and rehearsal process itself. This class is for the serious student. There will be work required outside of class. Students will audition during the first class for placement purposes. Please prepare a fully memorized song from a Musical Theater production, and bring your sheet music to the first class.
