Read on for tips from Austin, TX teacher Gfire M...   I live in Austin, Texas, the “live music capital of the world,” so I have worked with loads of vocalists who sing in touring rock bands.

Singing in Kansas City

By Thomas G. - Kansas City Singing Teacher

So you want to sing opera, in a Broadway show or a professional chorus? You'll find those opportunities 'up-to-date' in Kansas City! My name is Thomas, and I teach piano and singing lessons in Kansas City. I've just accepted a contract for "Carmen" at Lyric Opera of Kansas City, my 93rd show! I also serve as a section leader in the Trinity Choir of Grace and Holy Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, which tours to the British Isles every three years! As a member of the Trinity Choir, I've been able to sing in France, Italy, Austria, Ireland, Scotland and, of course, England!

Students looking to take singing lessons in Kansas City come to me to prepare for auditions, work on roles, as well as improving singing technique. So, if you’re looking to take singing lessons in Kansas City, check out some tips below on things to do and see to supplement your lessons in this favorable place for singing!

Kansas City is not just famous for its barbecue, it is renowned as an up-and-coming vibrant place for the arts. With the new Kauffman Center, Music Hall, Sprint Center, Crossroads District for the Arts, and First Fridays, the number of performance venues for your talent is incredible. Most cathedrals and larger churches employ section leaders. These types of community centers are great places to start, where you can meet local singers who know the scene and are active in other organizations. These singers are knowledgeable guides to auditioning and performing in the many organizations available to you in Kansas City. Larger churches also feature their own concert series and recitals, which give you opportunities to perform.

Additionally, Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral is an arts presenter and hosts the annual BACHATHON, a five hour extravaganza of music by Johann Sebastian Bach, held on the Sunday closest to Bach's birthday every year. Check out its website here: http://www.kcago.com/bachathon.html

The number of Broadway theater opportunities in Kansas City is staggering - I count at least 15 companies where you can audition and perform, and another 10 performing choral groups! A partial list of theaters would include: The Kansas City Starlight Theater, The Barn Players, The Theatre in the Park, Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre, The Coterie, Musical Theater Heritage, Spinning Tree Theatre, Kansas City Repertory Theatre (all produce Broadway musicals) and the Unicorn Theatre (off-Broadway musicals). Plus, there are many college and university group performances to choose from. Check out the websites below: www.kcstarlight.com www.thebarnplayers.org www.theatreinthepark.org www.metkc.org www.thecoterie.org http://www.musicaltheaterheritage.com/ http://spinningtreetheatre.com/ www.kcrep.org www.unicorntheatre.org

Professional and semi-professional choral groups include the Grammy award-winning Kansas City Chorale, William Baker Festival Singers, Kansas City Symphony Chorus, Heartland Men's Chorus, Kansas City Women's Chorus, Kansas City Men's Chorus, City of Fountains Chorus, Kantorei of Kansas City, Octarium, Te Deum, and Musica Vocale. You can find web links to most of the above (just Google them!). Whether you are a beginner, an amateur, a semi-professional or a professional singer, there is a performance venue waiting for you in Kansas City!

It is my pleasure to work with singers in the Kansas City metropolitan area!
