A step-by-step approach to singing appropriate for beginners or intermediate singers. Exercises in relaxation, breath control, and vocal technique tailored to each student’s level of development are explored. Various singing terms such as chest, head, falsetto, legit, belting, etc. are explained, taking the “mystery” out of singing. Attention will be paid to “audition anxiety”, and a unique, “age appropriate” solo audition song will be assigned, encouraging a fun, positive singing experience. All students will learn an effective vocal warmup before auditions. While students join in group numbers or exercises, the thrust of the class is for the individual.
