Mary Ann's Workshops

    Broadway Belt: Training Vocal Athletes

    , Intermediate, Advanced / , , Musical Theatre, , , / Regular

    Do you want to learn to belt or does your belt need to be stronger? Does your voice crack or break between chest voice and head voice? Is it breathy on higher notes? Does your voice have the stamina to sing eight shows a week? In this workshop, you will learn exercises to help you sing from the bottom to the top of your vocal register without breaking, flipping, or cracking. You'll learn how to move from mix into belt and how to do it in a healthy way. All levels of singing experience are welcome, as are actors who haven't yet learned to sing.
