Vocal Technique & Performance Class Description

Private lessons from an approved instructor is required. (Speak to Alexys if you have questions.) Each student sings solos of their choice and receives constructive and supportive feedback from classmates and instructor to improve technique, style and overall performance. The class is always very supportive and the instructor makes sure all are sharing constructive and honest feedback towards the goal of improvement.

The primary focus of the Level One class members is vocal technique to develop the individual’s voice. The Level One class members must be able to sing a simple song in tune. (If you are unsure you meet this requirement, schedule a private lesson with the instructor.) Level Two class members will focus more on performance, style, and stage presence, but technique must remain at the core of the performances. The Level Two class members are generally more experienced, but this has proven to work positively as experienced members support and encourage beginners, and we are all learning from everyone.

Each class, students are given suggestions and “homework” to practice during the week, with the goal towards improvement. It is often times amazing to see and hear the improvement at the end of the series. A performance showcase is the next to last class, held in a public venue. Each student invites friends and loved ones to witness and hear their progress. Its another very supportive and fun environment.
