ASOTA ARTISTIC DEVELOPMENT SERIES
This course is designed to give students a thorough knowledge of musical theatre repertoire, vocal types, composers, style periods and musical influences that are a part of the American Musical Theatre Genre from the Tin Pan Alley and Golden Age era through the present. Instructor Dr. Maryann Kyle provides a comprehensive learning experience that includes an understanding of the evolution of musical theatre, cultural and economic influences, composers, lyricists, collaborators and the music.
