What is this? Community of Singers Voice Class is a 90-minute weekly singing session, where singers will learn the basics of vocal technique amidst other fellow singers. In this community, you will learn the power of finding your voice and its’ positive effects on your life as a whole.
How does this differ from private voice lessons? While the subject matter is the same for both, Private lessons are one-on-one voice instruction, whereas the Voice Class will consist of around 5 singers.The first part of the session will be learning a vocal tool, and the rest of class will be used for practice. Students will get a chance for personalized attention and have the added bonus and energy of being able to observe and support their classmates’ vocal journeys.
What information will be covered? Students will learn the basics of:
- Diaphragmatic-Intercostal Breathing
