Voice Technique Classes
These classes deal with common technical problems in a group setting. You may observe without participating in actual vocalization if you wish, we try to be sensitive to those who are not experienced in this particular venue and work them in slowly. These classes are wonderful from the simple standpoint that we all must deal with the same issues regarding singing no matter how “green” or advanced we are. Frequently, realizations about one’s own technique occur at these forums that we would be hard-pressed to recreate in a private lesson. Sometimes we have singers sing a part of a piece in these sessions but primarily they are “discovery through vocalization”.
