We still have a couple of spots available in our private voice studios for this semester. This is an incredible opportunity for students to learn one-on-one with an experienced private instructor to grow as a musician, as well as gain confidence as an individual. The concentration on individualized vocal technique benefits students in all areas of vocal music, including Pop Show and Musicals.
We have two music-degreed private instructors who have performed on various stages throughout the world. During the school year, we have at least two solo competition opportunities for students to compete in, and a recital at the end of the year to showcase their talents to family and friends. The students who participate in a private voice studio will also benefit by including their successes in various competitions on their college application, regardless of their pursued major. In addition, many universities have scholarships for non-music majors that these students would be eligible for.
Students receive 23-minute lessons once a week, at a rate of $24 per lesson paid directly to the private instructor. This is a bargain in comparison to the usual $35-50 lessons from outside vocal coaches! Lessons occur during class time, so there is no conflict with after school tutorials or events. You may also use fundraising points to help cover voice lessons as well!
If your student is interested in beginning lessons, please let us know!
