The Introductory singing class is for young singers ages 5 to 6 who love to sing. This is a wonderful introduction to vocal music.

All students discover their voice and a wide variety of music genres in a friendly and educational environment. Students are encouraged to sing a variety of music including music theater, jazz, and contemporary music. (RCM Voice and Theory Examinations are optional.) All students learn music theory and sight singing in every lesson. Older students have the opportunity to sing harmony with others in small groups.
♬ Adult Vocal Lessons (all levels of experience welcome)

developing a healthy singing technique
learning how the vocal instrument works
building your range and ability
overcoming stage fright (yes, you can)
