Master Classes & Guests

Belmont University Musical Theatre strives to provide the very best in master classes and clinicians. We bring "New York to Nashville" and work hard to maintain our relationships with the experts in our trade. We always schedule time with a casting director or agent when in New York for the Fall Break trip and during our Senior Showcase event. We also utilize our connections here at home. Nashville is home to many Tony Award winning musicians, actors and singers. Most recently, students were treated to a conversation with Wayne Kirkpatrick (Something Rotten) as he visited with us during our musical theatre seminar class.
