Developed by one of the area’s foremost belters, this class is specially designed to help altos and sopranos use a powerful "mix-belt" and improve their belting range through a systematic gradual process, with a special emphasis on contemporary musical theatre and pop styles. For any any alto or soprano working or hoping to work in musical theatre.
