Voice and Choir

About Our Classes

One of the best ways to develop your singing voice is to be part of a choir. Even before taking Private Lessons in voice, singers in a choir learn basic breath control and tone matching. Choir provides an excellent musical education along with fostering teamwork and building confidence.

We are also offering Songwriting classes. These will be great for students who enjoy singing and want to learn more about how songs are written. No previous music experience is required to join. See our Musicianship & Theory page for more information. We also have Writing Workshops for Teens, which includes a short session on Lyric Writing. See our Musical Theatre & Drama section for more details.

If you are interested in one-on-one voice lessons for you or your child, we recommend trying Private Lessons.
