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.
