For that, we have developed a class that lasts 1,5 hours and is taught by two teachers who both have studied Musical Theatre performance in the UK. Rafie Americanou is the acting and singing teacher and Athina Roditou is the dance teacher.
Theory and musicianship
Music is a language and as in all languages we learn not only to speak but also to read and write! Music theory and musicianship lessons are appropriate for all the people who take instrument lessons and they help them understand music language better. In these classes, students learn how to read and write music, and how all the music notes are connected and all together build the sounds we play and we hear. Further, they learn not only to recognize the written sounds and their relationship but also to recognize be hearing them. With these classes a music score is more well comprehend and improves their performance skills.
