This comprehensive program offers an essential blend of music, acting and dance courses for the student who aspires for a career in Music Theatre performance. The intensive performance-based training is blended with a challenging range of academic-based studies, all resulting in a well-rounded education in the arts.

The program begins with a focus on the artist’s imagination and an exploration of his or her inner resources as they relate to the external demands of the craft. Early curriculum is designed to provide strong performance skills within a musical theatre base and individual voice instruction to build classical technique. Using AMDA’s clearly defined approach to each song, which emphasizes a genuine union of music to lyric, students gain the confidence and skills necessary to explore a variety of genres that may include Classical, Contemporary, Jazz, Blues, Pop, etc. Additionally, each term holds exhilarating and rewarding acting, dance and musical production and performance opportunities.
