Instructor comments:

This class is for all levels of singing, and experience. You do not have to read music to be in this class, and there is no audition requirement. It's a wonderful way to "get your feet wet" if you've ever wanted to explore singing. We have had students who have never sung in front of people before, and that's okay!

All class meetings will be from 10:00-11:50 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays, all through Zoom. In addition, the instructor will be giving multiple individual coachings to each student throughout the term to improve their own singing and performance abilities.

This is a participation and performance-based class. Attendance is a must for a good grade. Both the midterm and final are solo performances in front of your peers, but they are very low-pressure, and you will be able to sing a song of your own choice.

Classes are very positive and welcoming towards all students, regardless of musical genre and experience. Other assignments will include a few quizzes on assigned readings, as well as short analyses of your songs.

We will also be using "Cantabile Voice Class" by Katharin Rundus as our textbook. It is a short, but wonderful resource to explore various aspects of singing. It costs less than $20 dollars. Sheet music will be provided by instructor.
