These are just a few things that will help solo or choir singers improve their musical knowledge and overall performance. All of this will be done in a fun, classroom setting with singing throughout the workshop.

Adult Vocal Workshop – 6:30pm – 8:00pm 

This class will focus on the fundamentals of singing for the beginning to intermediate singer. Aside from posture, proper breathing mechanics, vocal exercises, and proper vocal placement throughout the vocal registers, you’ll learn about yourself!

In a safe, active, fun and intense group setting, you’ll learn not only the “what” of vocal mechanics, but also the “how” and “why” as you learn how to become more attuned to your own special and unique instrument.
