Do I need prior singing experience to take this class?
Is this class right for me?
Yes! This class is for you if you have an amazing singing voice, if you love singing but aren’t confident in your singing voice, if you can read music, if you can’t read music, if you like to try new things, and if you sing to have fun!
Is this class participatory?
Yes, but if you do not wish to participate you are not required to do so.
How should I prepare for this class?
Just bring yourself, and some water if you would like! The class will begin with an extensive vocal warm-up before you start to learn the music.
Will there be solo performances?
There may be some division of the class into smaller groups, but there won’t be any solos.
What’s the basic format of the class?
After a quick introduction, the class will kick off with an extensive warm-up for tone and color specifically related to the material you’ll be learning. Then you’ll learn the music, take a short break, and perform the song all together. This class will take place in Studio A in our brand new Center for New Work, Education and Design. Come sing a song in our beautiful new space!
