ANMT’s sixth annual MUSICAL THEATRE BOOT CAMP presents:


Instructor: Dan Callaway

Saturday/Sunday morning: 11am to 2pm

July 23 and 24

Course Fee: $250 (Early Bird/ANMT Member Fee: $225)


The majority of us performing in musical theatre have no problem learning the notes and knowing what we want to communicate in a song … the thing that a lot of performers are mystified by is their actual vocal technique.

Just the words ‘vocal technique’, ‘voice lesson’, ‘classical training’, etc. conjure images of rigid, hands-clasped, boooring scales and stress.

In this session, you will learn the basics of the belcanto tradition of singing …it’s a lot simpler than you think, and you don’t have to dig out your 24 Italian Art Songs and Arias book from college.

Using the simple tools of the belcanto understanding of singing as a default setting, you can then adjust to the many styles called for in musical theatre safely and with ease. We’ll also talk about what styles suit you best so you can specialize in the areas where you will actually book work.

You will learn how to use your vocal technique as a helpful coach that compliments your acting technique as opposed to a critical snark-face (yes, snark-face) that messes up your auditions.

Here’s the breakdown…

Saturday, July 23 11am-2pm
Workshop that will demystify basic vocal technique for you as well as show you very simple, usable tools that we rarely learn as singers.

Sunday, July 24 11-2
Master Class …You will work your material with an accompanist, and we will use the tools we learned Saturday (slowly and safely) in conjunction with acting technique to discover how the two actually work together.

Class limited to 8 participants.
