Many a successful Opera Musical or Ballet DSM has had reason to thank the very popular and practical SMA Cueing to Music courses for their career progression; these popular one day (each) courses are designed to take people with little or no musical knowledge through to calling shows at major opera house standard, and will give you confidence in running shows and in understanding and using the musical terms and language required.

Level One Course Aim:

To enable a potential DSM or Showcaller, one without musical knowledge, to cue from musical scores and thus feel confident enough to undertake such work with opera, musical and ballet companies.

Course Objectives

1. To examine the basic elements of musical notation and the function of piano reductions in relation to the rehearsal process.

2. To understand how singers, as opposed to actors, impact on the role of a DSM/Showcaller

3. To undertake Cueing exercises numerous and complex enough to instil confidence.

4. To simulate a music test at opera company level
