Song Learning Kit F.A.Q.
Purchasing Sheet Music
Q: Why don’t I get the sheet music in this kit?
A: We are not music publishers, we are professional theatrical educators here to show you how to kill it. We also want to make sure that the writers get the money they deserve through the proper channels. You will see pieces of the sheet music where cuts are marked or phrasing and acting notes, but we have purposely made it impossible to get the sheet music in this kit.
How Do You Choose The Songs?
We want to include songs that are slightly off the main stream. You won’t see a song from Wicked appearing here. We are sticking to songs that work for auditions, that aren’t too overused and that have a broad appeal. We also want songs that give good actors something tangible to play. (You won’t see Astonishing either!)
We would love to hear your suggestions, fill out the form on this page to let us know which tune you would like to see here.
