Class Description

Master Class: Vocal Health and How to Prepare for an Audition: 

In this masterclass, during the initial 45 minutes, we will discuss important strategies to use when picking repertoire for a specific audition, and how to thoroughly prepare for an audition.  Basic vocal technique and vocal health concepts will be covered. All students will have the chance to learn vocal exercises that can help release tension and perfect their technique. There will be a seasoned CYT Tucson youth who will perform a typical audition with live accompaniment. Both the beginning and seasoned performing artists will walk away with useful information to perfect that upcoming audition! 

In the second half of this master class, you will join your child for a paneled Q &A where parents can ask any question they may have about how to help their children prepare for an audition. The panel will consist:
Kate Scally, v=Voice Teacher
Vanessa Corona, Choreographer 
Lisa Foster, CYT Tucson Show Coordinator
Therese Lester, CYT Tucson, Board President
 Charlene De Witt, CYT Tucson Seasoned Parent
