ACTING FOR THE CAMERA

In this class, we’ll focus on developing our foundational CAMERA ACTING SKILLS. Whether you’re interested in acting on television; acting in commercials; acting in movies; or acting in independent films – this class can help.

Students will practice their camera-acting techniques, learning to tailor their performance to the camera.

Some in-class performances will be filmed and watched in class using a pro camcorder, and students will be given feedback on both both what they’re doing well, and how to sharpen and improve their on-camera acting.

We’ll practice interacting with other actors on camera; learning how to let go of self-consciousness and forget you’re being filmed; learning how to walk to a mark; learning how to “size” your performance as the camera angles are varied, making  your performance larger or smaller, while staying true to your character and his or her motivation; and other skills associated with acting for the camera.

CHORAL SINGING FOR BEGINNERS

While “choral” music is normally associated with large choirs or chorales, in this case, the Musical Theater: Choral Singing For Beginners class is for new singers who would like to learn what it’s like to sing in a group. It’s as simple as that.

Anyone who has taken the Musical Theater: Singing For Beginners class and feels comfortable with the basics of reading sheet music and carrying a tune is welcome to join this class.

If you haven’t taken Singing For Beginners but already have a good idea of how to read sheet music, you also are welcome!

In this course, participants will learn simple melodies and harmonies by following sheet music provided by the instructor. We will work through more complex rhythms than in the Singing For Beginners class, so it is important that you know the basics of reading music before joining this class.

This course can be combined with any of the other Musical Theater Program classes or can be taken by itself. Instructor: Rachel Rene
