Class Description

Need to be ready for that next audition?  Or are you more comfortable singing in a group?   While this is a vocal class, we will address individual challenges together as a group while having fun, and working together to build each other’s confidences as we learn to trust each other to learn:
-improving our music reading skills by learning solfege basics
-learn some technical skills in breathing, breath control and pitch
-proper vocal warmup techniques
-better understanding in singing parts and harmony
We will accomplish these goals by studying the history and music of the longest running musical in history on Broadway;  The Fantasticks!  We will be working on both individual songs in addition to a group performance as a choir to further develop our confidence and skill in singing.  Music is not limited to this particular musical and the student may prefer their own choice from popular, musical theater or even opera.  The goal is to improve our vocal capability through fun, watching the learning experience of others in the class, learning to trust and provide support for others.
