Musical Theater Composition

March 17 @ 5:45 pm - 7:45 pm

Class runs every Friday for six weeks starting on March 17.

Students bring in and discuss ideas for their own musical theater storyline, including a song to incorporate into their musical. This will be a collaborative composition with the goal of creating a musical theater piece. Students are guided through the process of establishing melody, lyrics, and basic harmonic accompaniment for their song. This class is especially welcoming to first-timers!
