Wild Voices Music Theatre studio practice provides holistic training informed by a lifelong commitment to learning and self-development. We draw on repertoire from all genres – classical and contemporary – and from as many cultures as possible. We recognise Australia as a multilingual country, embracing the languages of all those we come into contact with and aiming to utilise multiple languages in our work.
A healthy body, excellent posture and good movement awareness are essential for healthy, efficient and powerful artistry as an actor, singer, pianist, conductor, teacher – and will support good communication and leadership skills in all workplaces.
A high level of literacy in music and language (vocal and physical) are essential components of artistic perception. Development of literacy skills is a major focus of our work with all students from lesson one onwards.
Artistry and mastery require a complex set of skills and attributes that:
- involve behavioural change
- require rigorous development of craft and technique
- call on a range of physical and psychological resources
- require a deep understanding of the artistic canon, and
- embrace science and art equally.
We work across disciplines and collaborate with a range of professionals to ensure students needs are met by those with the most appropriate skills.
