Vocal lessons are available to beginner through early advanced, beginning age 5 and older. Lessons address the fundamental aspects of singing through the use of educational singing activities for all ages, kid friendly vocal warm ups and music theory. Students will learn a variety of music styles including folk songs, lullabies, musical theatre selections and more. Lessons occur once a week, every week, in either private or partner format (provided there is a suitable match).
- Required Materials: Must have access to a fully functional and well-tuned piano or full-sized weighted keyboard. Students should bring their music method books, water bottle and repertoire to each lesson. Additional materials (music book bag, metronomes, music, flash cards) may also be recommended.
- Practice Expectations: A student's progress is determined by dedicated practice, not by simply attending lessons. Ideally, students should practice at least 4-5 days a week. Specific amounts of practice time are not assigned to each student. Instead, students should practice long enough to complete their weekly assignment.
Private/Partner Lessons: are given in 45 and 60 minute lengths. Private lessons for voice focus primarily on proper technique and repertoire as well as musicianship and creative skills.
Group Lessons are provided up to four times throughout the year in the place of the private lesson. Sometimes soloing can be a little lonesome. It’s wonderful to have opportunities to sing with and for others! To help make up for this, and also because it’s just plain fun, we have group lessons throughout the teaching year.

Introductory Vocal Class: Young singers not quite ready for one-on-one voice lessons can have fun learning about their voices and music in small group classes. Beginner voice classes introduce young singers to the practice of vocal warm-ups and singing songs, while following the Introductory Level book in the progressing curriculum called Full Voice. Introductory vocal classes are similar to general music enrichment classes for children, with the focus on the vocal instrument. Age groupings are 5 - 8yrs and 8 - 10yrs.
