Master Class Series:  Vocal Techniques for the Pop Rock Musical 

Pop rock music is storming the stage. Musicals written by Cyndi Lauper, Sara Bareilles, Abba, and Queen are just a few examples.

Yet, as a musical theatre actor, we were never really trained how to properly audition for this style, nor were we instructed how to use our voice to make some of these sounds...were we??


This series, Vocal Techniques for the Pop Rock Musical will arm you with proper techniques for pop/rock music.


This series will be presented by Stageworks (Houston Family Arts Center) alum, Jessie Brownie! Jessie graduated from Elon University with a BFA in Musical Theatre. Through her time at Elon and many auditions, Jessie learned what New York casting directors are looking for - your pop rock rep, and proper techniques for voice longevity.  (The third session is an optional session for no additional fee, for those considering studying musical theatre in college.)


The series includes:

  • Vocal Techniques for the Pop Rock Musical, Saturday, June 9, 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

  • Auditioning for a Pop Rock Musical, Saturday, June 16, 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

  • Musical Theatre - Do I Want to Pursue This as a Career?, Saturday, June 23, 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Price:  $65

Location: Stageworks Theatre 10760 Grant Road

If you'd like to participate by by working a song, come to the first session with an 80s, folksy rock, or disco song. Jessie will help you get that song AUDITION READY! We'll only have time to work a limited number of people.  Please email us if you'd like to present your song!
