Encore has made exciting changes for it’s Spring 2019 semester!
- Class times have been extended by a total of 30 minutes. A complete class, comprised of both voice & theater, is now a total of 1.5 hours – allowing 45 minutes for voice and 45 minutes for theater.
- Students, after taking part in a placement audition, will be assigned to a class based on their experience not age.
- Voice & Theater are now themed! Sabina and I have created themed content that will allow us to Showcase, “Travel Guide through Oz” in April creating a blend of like theatricals and vocals.
We will be holding Class Assignment (placement auditions*) on Tuesday, January 29 beginning at 6pm. Based on the results of these auditions, each student will be placed in a complete combination of Acting & Voice instruction.
It’s important for each student to master the particulars of their instruction before moving forward to the next level. This in no way reflects poorly on the student. As with dance, musical instruments or sport instruction, as you become proficient with the skills you are learning, then you can move forward. Practice does make perfect!
Classes will be held on Tuesday evenings beginning January 29 with placement auditions and will conclude with a Showcase Presentation on Saturday, April 20th. Classes will now run 1.5 hours, 45 minutes for Theater and 45 minutes for Voice, and students will be placed in a class based on the results of their placement audition. This increase will allow for more thorough instruction to insure each student is learning and performing at their very best. Cost is $65 per student for the semester and includes both theater and voice instruction.

*Student Placement explained:
Each student will need to prepare a memorized audition from the preselected pieces. They will be critiqued on vocal expression, body language and projection. Audition selections will be emailed to you after you have completed your registration.
Each student will perform a random note echo & pitch voice audition. A series of notes will be played from the piano and the student will echo back those notes with their voice. They will be critiqued on pitch fidelity, projection & tone.
