Musical Theater at BMS
Brooklyn Music School offers a range of programs to introduce young performers to musical theater. We provide specialized training in every aspect that goes into the musical theater craft, including singing and vocal coaching, acting, character development, movement, dance, costuming, set design, and writing of music and lyrics. Classes are taught by teachers with world-class backgrounds in musical theater, opera, dance and performance. Each child will have a role in staged productions and/or performances at BMS concerts.
Musical Theater Workshop
Musical theater can introduce a whole new dimension to learning music, by combining voice, movement, dance, and acting to create new friendships and memorable performances.
The Children's Musical Theater Workshop at BMS builds on our successful Summer Vocal Arts Program to enable kids ages 6-13 to build confidence and skills throughout the school year.
The workshop, held each Saturday from 12-1:30 p.m., provides a safe and fun environment for kids to explore their talents in theater, music and dance. Vocal warm ups and theater games will be integrated with rehearsals to provide training as well as exposure.
Designed for budding child performers, this workshop will culminate in a fully staged showcase performance for the BMS community and parents. Children will also participate in our annual concert series.
Summer Vocal Arts for Young Performers
Oriented to children ages 7-15, this program will include approximately 9 hours of classes in singing and dance, integrated with rehearsal that will introduce child performers to performance-oriented vocal arts and theater. Children will learn how to sing and dance as an ensemble, will be featured in solo pieces and acquire the presence and movement skills required to participate in a performance for parents and the community at the end of the session.
