The Basics of Singing is a six-part workshop designed for new singers; people who have always wanted to improve their singing, but do not know where to begin. Instructor Amanda Jones will teach participants how to concentrate on their breathing, diction, and posture alignment, while discovering the right song choice. Working alongside an accompanist (and much more!) participants will learn how to start the singing process from soup to nuts, and will leave feeling more confident in their abilities and more eager to jump into some new singing adventures!

The Basics of Singing is held Wednesdays from 7 to 8 p.m. starting April 7. Registration is $150 for six sessions; drop-in rates are available for $35 per class.


Amanda Jones is a music professional on the East End with more than 20 years of teaching experience, specializing in vocal and piano instruction. Her goals in teaching are always to meet her students where they are, and to encourage their growth as musicians while allowing them to be the unique individuals they all are! She is co-founder and music education director of South Fork Performing Arts, which strives to bring quality arts education to local youth by utilizing professional artists and teachers in the subjects of theatre and music. She is excited to bring the basics of singing to Bay Street Theater!
