What will I study?
Gain extensive practical training in music theatre’s principal disciplines of singing, acting and dance as individual crafts. Then learn to combine the three to create holistic music theatre performance.
In first year, the focus is on building an excellent foundation of skill, technique and self-awareness. You will develop your understanding of practices, concepts and language in all skills discipline areas, preparing you to confidently apply your process effectively, safely and independently.
In second year, you will deepen your understanding of the complex demands of music theatre performance across a range of contexts and will apply your developing skills in acting, singing and dancing to diverse and challenging material.
In third year, the focus moves to professional readiness, with training in audition techniques, acting for camera, and developing your rep folder, alongside performing in major productions and participation in the development of new works. Your final year culminates in an industry showcase for agents, directors and producers.
On completion, you'll be an industry-ready, professional performer with a strong sense of individual expression.
