Adults & Teens
Vocal Discovery Journey for Adults and Teens
This series of classes is ideal for singers from age 14 and up. In addition, the price is lower than private lessons, and focuses on improving your personal technique.
Duration: 2 months per class section, including performance
In every section students participate in a weekly class (one hour each). Students enjoy preparing these songs while learning vocal techniques in a fun and friendly atmosphere. At the conclusion of each 2 month section, students perform in a recital with solo and ensemble pieces. Each recital has a theme such as: Romance, Patriotic, Sacred, Christmas, Humorous etc. Students receive recognition for completion of each section. It is strongly recommended to take each section in order, ideally along with private vocal instruction to achieve superior vocal progress. Of course, there is flexibility in the program and any section may be repeated as often as students desire.
