Musical theatre is a style of performance that combines singing, dance and drama. Here at the Mobile Music school, we regularly deliver musical theatre workshops for schools. Our musical theatre workshops prove to delight students every time- and now we have even more good news!  The benefits of musical theatre workshops are endless, meaning that your child, or even yourself, could receive serious benefits to their confidence, problem solving abilities, and creative abilities! Read on to find out five benefits of musical theatre workshops.


1. Improved self confidence

Firstly, musical theatre workshops push students out of their comfort zone. Performing in front of the class can bring students out of their shells, therefore improving their self confidence. Secondly, students may even discover a hidden talent for dance, drama or acting they never knew they had. Further, getting over their initial nerves and enjoying the workshop can also give students the confidence to try new activities they were previously apprehensive about.


2. Problem solving skills

In drama, students are required to communicate the who, what, where, when and why of a scene. Improvisation encourages quick thinking and problem solving skills, and allows students to get creative and think outside the box. This provides a creative outlet for students,as students can expressive themselves. These quick thinking and creative skills lead to greater adaptability later on in life.


3. Teamwork and trust

Students are required to work as a team during our musical theatre workshops. The social interaction and risk taking in drama develop trust in self, others, and the process. Working as an ensemble can forage friendships, and develop a team building element of the workshops.


4. Social Awareness

Legends, myths, poems, stories, and plays used in drama teach students about social issues and conflicts from cultures past, present, and all over the world. Students learn the backdrop of the scene or piece they are performing, in turn learning all about cultural context and society. Acting out scenes from different situations, time periods, and cultures promotes compassion and tolerance for others.


5. Fun

Students always enjoy themselves at our musical theatre workshops, and in some cases, go on to pursue musical theatre independently. The students having fun and enjoying themselves are the core principles of our workshops, and this in turn improves motivation in school and reduces stress.
