How do I write a waltz as “waltz-y” as Hammerstein’s “Carousel Waltz”? What’s the difference between a tango, a rhumba, and salsa? More importantly, how can I get my piano writing for up-tempos to sound different from my writing for ballads?

The answer to all these questions is…SPECIFICITY! In our first session, we’ll discuss the specific musical characteristics of common musical theater genres (“Show 2,” latin dances, swing and jazz forms,etc) and explore examples from the repertoire (West Side Story, The Producers, The Full Monty, Hamilton), noting the qualities of melody and orchestral/piano writing that really “nail” a genre or style. In the second session, we’ll play/sing through some of your 16-bar examples of the genres that you’ve written during the week. Let’s make really evocative, SPECIFIC music!
