Ep.84 The Benefits of Cross-Genre Training With The Voice Collective

Today Alexa is joined by two guests from across the pond in New York City. They are the duo who founded The Voice Collective, a voice studio from which they deliver coaching, specialising in body voice connection, musical theatre, pop, rock, rough vocal effects, and cross genre. Cassi Mikat and William Pazdziora are on Singing Teacher's Talk this week to tell you about the benefits of cross-genre training. KEY TAKEAWAYS In general, cross-genre training means taking a singer who is comfortable in a particular genre and helping them find their footing in a new one. The training can completely vary depending on the singer you have in front of you.  A singer who learns to work across multiple genres is more hireable and will usually find it easier to find work as a singer. Also a  student who explores more types of singing can find more of who they are and where they fit. All singers need to practise stretching their chords. They need to practise balancing registration. There is no genre that doesn't require you to have an understanding of your voice and your technique. And there's no genre that does it better than other genres. As a voice teacher you don't need to be specially trained in a specific genre, you just need an understanding of vocal function which can help you make all the sounds that you need and want to make. BEST MOMENTS‘I love that. The neutral voice, finding out what feels the most authentic'‘As a voice teacher, I'm interested in making sure all of my students have all of the options'‘We can get a little bit tripped up in defining contemporary and musical theatre singing by putting a checklist on it' EPISODE RESOURCES BAST Training Guest Website: cassimikat.com williampazdziora.com Social Media: Instagram: @voice.collective TikTok: @voice.collective  Relevant Links & Mentions:  Boston's Conservatory Professional Pedagogy Professional Workshop: https://bostonconservatory.berklee.edu/extension-programs/vocal-pedagogy-professional-workshop Singing Teachers Talk Podcast: Ep. 50 Managing ‘Pushy Parents' and Teaching ‘Legit' with Amelia Carr: https://open.spotify.com/episode/69p10R0n5FWT3OKlvmJdDO?si=d8ec53d26293409e Kristin Linklater: https://www.linklatervoice.com/ (Featured Song): Don't You Remember by Adele Singing Teachers Talk Podcast: Ep. 40 Integrated Skills: Teaching Singing to Dancers with Jennie Morton: https://open.spotify.com/episode/3fm53D7NcGWTmwzE3Sg2nM?si=5343dc5ef2d94892 ABOUT THE GUEST Cassi Mikat and William Pazdziora are the co-founders of The Voice Collective, a voice studio based in NYC (and across the country, online). Their mission at The Voice Collective is to bring collaborative, empowering, and elite voice training to singers everywhere who want to feel joy in their singing, free from limitations. Cassi and William met at Boston Conservatory, where they were a part of the inaugural class to complete their MFAs in Musical Theatre Vocal Pedagogy. There, they became quick friends, bonding over their similar philosophies for both life and the voice. Cassi and William both have extensive performance experience in regional theatres and entertainment venues across the United States and the globe. In addition to their MFAs, Cassi holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Wright State University in Acting with an emphasis in Musical Theatre, and William holds a Bachelor of Arts from Temple University in Theatre with a concentration in Musical Theatre and a Minor in Dance. William currently serves on the voice faculty at Berklee College of Music. Cassi and William both were selected to present at Boston Conservatory's Vocal Pedagogy Professional Workshop in 2022. Cassi presented on finding sustainability and authenticity in pop/rock singing alongside Dr. Jessye DeSilva. William's presentation was titled: "The Triple Threat Tango: Navigating Breath Strategies for Singers in Musical Theater."  Cassi and William both taught voice at The Boston Conservatory to Contemporary Theater Majors and aspiring Musical Theater Students as instructors for the Conservatory Musical Theater Dance Intensive. Together, Cassi and William have launched a social media campaign to help provide access to information, inspiration, and training for singing artists everywhere.

This week we're joined by Kelsey Beckert!Kelsey Beckert. Performer. Teacher. Caregiver. Student. A true jack of all trades and master of nothing. After returned to New York City after touring all over North America on two National Tours for the better part of 3 years, Kelsey desired a career change. (Quarter-life crisis much?) At that time, her love for working with children was beginning to surpass her love for performing. It was also at that time when she heard about the field of Child Life. Instinctually, she knew that being a certified child life specialist was what she wanted to do. But, life kept going, she kept performing, and that new dream was placed on the back burner. Cue COVID-19. After obtaining her Yoga Teacher certification during the lockdown, Kelsey was still not satisfied. Who would've thought that a year into a global pandemic was when she finally found the clarity (and confidence!) to pursue that dream of being a certified child life specialist? Now 18 months and 7 online courses later, she is well on her way to obtaining this new career and new life for herself. After letting go of her doubts, fears, and insecurities about this career shift (a big thank you to deleting social media apps off of her phone), Kelsey is happier than ever and living the life that she always imagined.Kelsey's Links:  IG: @kelsey_eileenFacebook: Kelsey Beckert Follow us on Instagram: @Jackofalltrades_podcastEmail us at: jackofalltradespodcast2020@gmail.comFollow our Host, Sarah Bishop on her Social Media: Instagram: personal: @sarahpbishopteaching: @singwithbishTik Tok: @singwithbishAudio Engineering: Amanda BishopHost: Sarah BishopIntro Song "Strong"- written by Sarah Bishop, Intro Song "Strong"- arranged and performed by Laura Crytzer

Talia Suskauer is currently playing Elphaba in "Wicked" on Broadway, following the success of the Munchkinland National Tour of the same show where she played the same role. From being a pasta lover to being a dog lover, Talia gets super personal as she shares how she got into theatre, which includes singing recordings in the car with her mom and sister. Talia looks back on the things that inspired her to pursue acting, the lessons she took throughout her childhood and teenage years, and how the support she got from her parents and mentors has molded her and helped her find her identity as an artist and performer. She recalls her first audition for "Be More Chill" just a week before graduating and her Broadway debut which she considers as unexpected and wild. During their closing week, Talia auditioned for "Wicked" as an Elphaba replacement and eventually got the role. And with live theatre shutting down for almost two years due to the pandemic, Talia opens up about how it affected her mental health, not being able to turn to theatre as a means of escape, and what helped her get out of her rut, including exercising. She was a part of the reopening cast for "Wicked" which was the first Broadway-caliber show to reopen in the country. She talks about being on tour and being on Broadway, why she loved touring, her passion for her job, and why you shouldn't let anyone try to put you in a box because your uniqueness is what makes you special. Talia Suskauer is a New York-based actor and singer who made her Broadway debut in "Be More Chill" and recently finished a long run in the Munchkinland National Tour of Wicked as Elphaba. She attended Penn State, where she re­ceived her BFA in Musical Theater. Her other stage credits include "Shrek", "Little Women", and "The Secret Garden". Talia is currently playing Elphaba in "Wicked" on Broadway. She's also appeared in a few TV shows such as "The Kelly Clarkson Show" and "The Broadway Show with Tamsen Fadal".  Connect with Talia: Twitter: @taliarach Instagram: @taliasuskauer Facebook: @taliasuskauernyc Website: taliasuskauer.com Connect with The Theatre Podcast: Support us on Patreon: Patreon.com/TheTheatrePodcast Twitter & Instagram: @theatre_podcast TikTok: @thetheatrepodcast Facebook.com/OfficialTheatrePodcast TheTheatrePodcast.com Alan's personal Instagram: @alanseales Email me at feedback@thetheatrepodcast.com.

In business, especially the art industry, we face a lot of rejections, and it is easy to get ahead of ourselves or think that we cannot get where we want to be. However, when you are resilient, focused, and true to yourself, your dreams will come true in a way you might not expect, which can be more special than what you would have created for yourself. Sometimes we don't see ourselves at different levels of success because of what people say and perceive about us. But taking power out of other people's hands and owning our own identity, regardless of how others see us, will empower us and change how we walk into a room.In this episode, Broadway actor Ashley Blanchet talks about how to step into your power as a woman (and a black woman) and how to own the your power and the things that make you different instead of shying away from them and trying to hide them from people. “People are all over watching, and if you have the integrity to do good works no matter what, it will come back around.” Snapshot of the Key Points from the Episode:[03:19] Ashley's career journey and how she got where she is today.[06:13] Ashley's Broadway comeback experience in WAITRESS at Barrymore theater.[08:40] What was it like for Ashley to be the first black woman to play the role of Elsa?[11:34] A lesson that Ashley learned in a camp as a kid that she will never forget. [13:09] How is Ashley able to thrive in an industry where rejection is constant and part of the process? [18:42] Ashley's favorite and memorable projects that she has been part of.[23:38] How has pivoting helped Ashley discover new ways to use her acting skills during the pandemic?  [27:17] The things Ashley keeps exploring and stretching herself in to improve and grow. [30:44] Ashley's advice on self-tapes and taking classes to get your skills set and how to keep them accessible[35:13] What is Ashley doing to engage her fan base? How Ashley navigates performing and the business side of being a performer.[37:46] Ashley's advice on how to find a good agent, create a package, and put yourself out there.[41:45] What does working from your happy place means to Ashely?  [43:59] Ashley's advice for young people starting out on how to find their unshakable success.About Ashley Blanchet -Ashley Blanchet was most recently seen on Broadway as Dawn in WAITRESS at the Barrymore theater. Other Broadway credits include: FROZEN, (where she was first black woman to play the role of Elsa), BEAUTIFUL (the locomotion), ANNIE (star to be), and MEMPHIS.This summer she was Miss New Hampshire in the world premiere of the new musical THE BEDWETTER, written by Josh Harmon and Sarah Silverman. Favorite regional credits include: Cinderella (Title role; Papermill Playhouse), Oklahoma (Ado Annie; Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera), Film/TV: The Good Fight, "Better Nate Than Ever,” on Disney+, and the award winning short animated film "Are You Okay?" for which she voiced the title character, Raquelle.Ashley received her BFA in Musical Theater from The University of Michigan where she was awarded the Kurt Weill Award for Excellence in Theater.

Why I'll Never Make It - An Actor’s Journey

Sometime before the pandemic, I auditioned for a small off-Broadway production of the Lerner and Loewe musical The Day Before Spring. It was at the York Theater, which is known for reviving or refreshing older musicals that may not be done very much. I wasn't cast in that particular production, and like most failed auditions I put it out of my mind as soon as it was done. But I do remember the director behind the table, and so I finally reached out to bring him onto the podcast. Marc Acito is a playwright, novelist, and director. He talks about the work that he does in adapting older shows or contemporary works, bringing fresh set of eyes and perspective to creative process. Marc is also a writer of his own work from plays like Bastard Jones and novels including How I Paid for College: A Novel of Sex, Theft, Friendship and Musical Theater to short films like Mad/Woman. And through each of these mediums, he's had his stumbles and failures, but he'd be the first to tell you how grateful he is for those lessons learned.  Learn more about WINMI Podcast at whyillnevermakeit.com  Subscribe to WINMI and get Bonus Episodes on Supercast  Donate to the making this podcast and its production efforts Follow Why I'll Never Make It on Instagram or Twitter  Watch full episodes and special excerpts on YouTube  Get a free copy of WINMI's collection of Creative Wisdom  ---------- Why I'll Never Make It is hosted by Off-Broadway actor and singer Patrick Oliver Jones and is a production of WINMI Media, LLC.

Applying her songs to Charlotte Perkins Gilman's feminist classic "The Yellow Wallpaper" felt as if they were written for the material. Storm and I bonded in 2007 over the shared experiences of being just commercial enough for everyone to wonder why we weren't more successful and just alternative enough to sabotage ourselves. Perhaps not coincidentally, we both survived mentally ill mothers. At least twice mine woke up in a pool of her own blood after being beaten senseless by a raging boyfriend. Because I wanted to create a subjective experience as liberated from the male gaze as possible, hiring an all-female crew proved essential. Their and Storm's input influenced innumerable decisions I never would have had the insight nor courage to make. I'll be forever grateful to them as well as the diverse group of post-production artists who essentially served as my film school for my filmmaking debut. Watch it on Film Freeway    Final Five with Marc Acito After this main conversation, Marc stuck around to answer the five final questions. He shares his definition of "making it" as well as what keeps most Broadway shows from doing the same.

Career Q&A with Kristin Chenoweth. Moderated by Richard Ridge, Broadway World. Emmy and Tony Award winning actress and singer, Kristin Chenoweth, takes the lead in a career that spans film, television, voiceover and stage, effortlessly. She received an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on the ABC series Pushing Daisies (Pushing Daisies was also nominated for a Golden Globe Award and Emmy Award for “Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy.”) More recently, Chenoweth lit up the stage of McKinley High as a former student who returned to town with more than the baggage from her flight, on Fox's hit comedy, Glee. Though Kristin has often come into our livingrooms on hit shows such as The West Wing (where she starred as Annabeth Schott) and as a guest judge on both American Idol and Project Runway, she may be most remembered by Broadway lovers everywhere for her origination of the role of Glinda the Good Witch in Wicked, which earned her a Tony Award Nomination, and her Tony-winning performance in You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown, for which she stole the show and many hearts in the process. Chenoweth will next be seen on-screen in the Universal film The Boy Next Door, alongside Jennifer Lopez, and in the animated Lucas film fairy tale musical Strange Magic, both set to be released on January 23. She will also be seen in the film A Bet's A Bet (International title: The Opposite Sex), releasing in January. She's completed production on the indie teen drama entitled Hard Sell and the Disney Channel's live-action original movie Descendants, in which she will play the classic Sleeping Beauty villain Maleficent. Chenoweth will return to Broadway, playing the glamorous film star, Lily Garland, in the Roundabout Theatre Company's 20-week limited engagement of On the Twentieth Century in March. In addition to her starring roles on stage and screen, in 2009, Kristin also wrote an upliftingly candid, comedic chronicle of her life so far, in, A Little Bit Wicked, which was released by Simon & Schuster, and debuted at # 12 on the New York Times Hardcover Non-Fiction Best Seller List. Kristin is also a passionate supporter of charities which dedicate their time and efforts to helping those in need, such as: the Kristin Chenoweth Art & Education Fund, The Red Cross, Broadway Cares EFA, The Point Foundation, ASTEP, breast cancer awareness, adoption advocacy and organizations supporting animal welfare. Chenoweth earned a Bachelor's degree in Musical Theater and a Master's degree in Opera Performance from Oklahoma City University. She was also presented with Honorary Doctorate degrees from both the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and her alma mater, Oklahoma City University. Kristin is an inductee into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, as well as the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame.

Jean Ross (1911-1973) inspired the character Sally Bowles, the cabaret singer in Christopher Isherwood's novel, Goodbye to Berlin, as well as the musical adaptation, Cabaret. Where fictional Sally was untroubled and naive, her real-life counterpart was driven, politically-engaged, and curious. This month, we're talking about muses–women who were drivers of creativity and inspiration. Once again, we're proud to partner with Mercedes-Benz (whose famous namesake was inspired by a young muse named Mercedes).

Maria Failla is a “Plant Killer Turned Plant Lady” on a mission to help everyone successfully care for plants and make the world a kinder and greener place. After learning to care for plants and experiencing the joy this brought to her life, she launched the Bloom and Grow Radio Podcast to learn alongside her listeners as she interviews experts in all aspects of plant care. Since the launch of her podcast, she also launched the Bloom & Grow [Virtual] Garden Society and authored Growing Joy: The Plant Lover's Guide to Cultivating Happiness (and Plants). Maria spent the last decade as a professional Musical Theater performer and has been seen in Broadway musicals on the Great White Way and around the world. She's thrilled to now use her voice to help people grow more joy in their lives, through plant care. As you'll soon hear, I recently stumbled upon Maria, her incredible work, and magnetic energy on Instagram. I bought her book - which I'm loving - and soon found out that my husband knows her! You'll find out how in the episode. Maria is a true breath of fresh air and is blazing a brand new trail in the wellness space. I can't wait for you to hear all of the details on how this beautiful venture came to be. In this episode, we chat about her journey pursuing her dream career as a singer and Broadway performer, landing a role in CATS, and more, how her love affair with plants began and became her favorite form of self-care, and included having coffee with her basil plant every morning instead of looking at a screen, what inspired her to start her podcast Bloom & Grow Radio, why it exploded in growth almost instantly, and now has over 1 million downloads, what it looked like for her to leave behind her career in the arts and become a fulltime entrepreneur, how she went from growing her listeners and subscribers, to launching a successful paid membership community and writing her book, and so much more!   To learn more about Maria Failla and the resources mentioned in this episode, visit the show notes.   Follow Me On: Facebook Instagram
