Learn about the fundamentals of acting through song with music director and vocal coach Robert Frost, an Arkansas native and alum of the Arkansas Rep's Educational Program. With Robert, students will work towards expressing themselves fully through song by exploring vocal technique, musical interpretation, and a character’s intention. Singers participating in the class must bring a 16-32 bar cut they know well and provide clearly marked sheet music for the accompanist. Please dress in clothing you're comfortable moving in. Observers will participate in a vocal warm up and learn as Robert coaches each actor. 

Robert is an NYC-based pianist, music director, arranger, and educator. Select MD credits include Miss Blanche Tells It All (NYMF); We Live In Cairo and Cardboard Piano (O’Neill Theater Center); Minor Character (Sharon Playhouse); Jonah and the Whale (7th House); and My Fair Lady (Arkansas Shakespeare Theater). Robert serves as the music director and conductor of Icons/Idols, a tetralogy of choral plays for over a dozen women+ singers. As a pianist, music director, and arranger, Robert has also worked with Arkansas Rep, The Cher Show (Lab: Music Assistant), Berkshire Theater Group, New Georges, NYU, New Dramatists, Lincoln Center, Connecticut College, and Molloy College.
