  • NYU Steinhardt, Music Theatre- A World of Opportunity
Our Music Theatre majors tend to have a strong grounding in musicianship skills and most play an instrument. They are committed to classically based voice training and are happy to take advantage of the opportunity to cross traditional lines and participate in opera workshops as well as fully-staged opera productions. As a result of this commitment to serious vocal study combined with an in-depth acting curriculum our students are well prepared to enter the world of professional music theatre performance.
