Ms. Pino and Mr. Bradley, voice staff

Private voice lessons are offered as optional enrichment to classroom instruction and are designed to utilize the broad scope of characteristic literature available for voice. Rather than stress the singular goal of competition preparation, lessons emphasize on nurturing independence and individual skills critical to the developing singer.
