Tyler has been busy practicing for that and also auditioned for and got into Gypsy with Hornsby Musical Theatre Society. Congratulations Tyler, you are a little Musical Theatre Power House
One of my favourite things to do with my students is take them into a professional recording studio and have them experience the joy of creating there own CD. We did this last Sunday and it was great fun you can see some photos and hear a few recordings below
Cherie – Falling for ya
Summer – A thousand years
I’ll post some more recordings and photos in the next update which will probably be in a couple of weeks time as we have our last Eisteddfod for the year Show us your Talent in Five Dock. I will also have information for you all in the next month regarding Christmas Carols whohoo (my absolute favourite day of the year) and my former student and now fellow singing teacher Grace Colley will hopefully be teaching in the Ryde area soon as she is taking on some students for me as I am currently almost completely booked out! We are in the process of locking down a location for her and I will have an update about that by the end of the week.
Happy Singing Everyone,
So Many Musicals! Term 2Emma Pearson : July 2, 2015
Wow it has been another massive term here at Music with Emma, with 3 musicals, The northern Beaches Eisteddfod and Grace Colley starting to teach singing lessons, it’s been extremely exciting and fun. Grace will be taking over lessons for me in Pennant Hills as I will now be solely teaching from my studio in Ryde. I just wanted to say a quick thank you to C3 Carlingford for all your support and encouragement over the last 2 and a half years and for allowing me and my students to use your space to sing from each Tuesday night.
Georgia was incredible as Tracey in Hairspray, from the moment she appeared on stage Georgia blew me and everyone else away. Her singing, facial expressions and comedic timing made the show just incredible. Georgia is currently looking into future productions, having been in SYMT’s production of Cinderella last year and now Hairspray at Pacific Hills, She definitely has a lot of opportunities and will only keep going up from here.
Ben gave a powerful performance as Horton in Sussical the Musical. Every second he was on stage he was acting. Including 4 songs where he just had to sit on the side of the stage feeling miserable about his predicament he never let up, not for a second! He’s voice was strong and he was especially moving. He’s already being courted by local theatre groups and I’m sure this is only the start of his career in Musical Theatre!
Louise is busy preparing for SYMT’s production of 42nd Street which premiers tomorrow night! For tickets check out their website here – http://symt.org.au/42ndstreet
Tyler is rehearsing for Alice in Wonderland Jnr her very first stage show. – tickets will be on sale later this year
Anika, Tyler and Marianna competed in the Northern Beaches Musical Theatre section and each did an incredible job.
Tyler was the Evil Mother Gothel from Tangled, Anika the beautiful and hard working Princess Tiana from Princess and the Frog and Marianna the hilarious and Glinda from Wicked. I was very proud of each of my girls.
Entries for the Castle Hill Eisteddfod are now closed. But entry forms for Five Dock and Carlingford will be available soon.
Musical Auditions have already started local and professional shows and will continue through August and September.
Happy Singing Everyone!
