This workshop is designed for experienced as well as new singers. It will focus on group songs from musical theater as well as popular songs from contemporary music. Built for the person who loves to sing but may be uncomfortable singing in public, these workshops will be held in a comfortable, collaborative and no-judgmental environment where all the selections will be sung as a group and will focus on the group as opposed to solo dynamic of singing.
Along the way, participants will get better at their singing but also learn invaluable insights on breathing, diction, posture alignment, song choices, working with an accompanist (and much more!) Participants will feel more confident in their abilities as singers after singing alongside a supportive and nurturing group and will be more eager to jump into some new singing adventures!
Adults ages 18 and up. Mondays and Wednesdays from 7 to 9 p.m. starting March 7 through March 30. $200 for six sessions.
