Places are limited – age 13+. You must book early to ensure a spot. If you are interested in singing in this masterclass, please prepare 32 bars of a musical theatre song that represents your skills, style, and personality. An accompanist will be provided, so bring sheet music in the correct key that is clearly marked. Sheet music should be placed in a binder with non-glare sheet protectors. Telly will engage ALL students in the entire class. Those who are interested in singing will put their name in a hat at the top of the class. Telly will pull names from the hat and work with as many singers as possible in the allotted time, utilising those students and their selections to engage the entire class in a close examination and discussion of vocal and story-telling techniques to find deeper connection to their pieces. You do not need to sing to participate in the class. Singing participants and observers are welcome.
