Due to the challenges with COVID-19, we are suspending the group voice class and requirement for the Fall 2020 semester. Our hope is to return it to our offerings for Spring 2021!
Is your child wanting to give voice lessons a try? We require all students between the age of 8-11 to complete our group voice class before moving into one of our private voice studios. Why? Most students this age are working on similar concepts, techniques and challenges. Learning to master those things in a group setting helps give them the tools needed for a more successful start in private lessons. Each student will still prepare their own individual repertoire and present an end of the semester performance.
