YOUR YEAR

T O R E D I S C O V E R Y O U R V O I C E !

In a year filled with negativity and uneasiness about the future, we are going to TAKE BACK YOUR VOICE! Due to the pandemic and us being unable to hold choir in its traditional sense, we are going to take advantage of this year and learn about our own unique instruments. The 2020-21 school year will be about self-discovery in your own vocal abilities, personal growth in your talents at whatever level you find yourself, and the power to use those skills to be confident in sharing your gift with others. Each one of you processes a special talent and a love of music. This year, I want you to tap into that passion and become the vocalist you’ve always wanted to be!

Each week you will be given a private voice lesson with me and we will map out a plan of attack! When you are not in a lesson with me, you will spend class time applying what we’ve discussed in your lesson in private practice and also completing a series of music theory activities to help you better understand what you’re looking at in the musical score.

Your goal is to perfect 1-2 pieces each quarter. We will then choose one of the pieces you have that is performance ready and we will video record your performance. We will then hold a Virtual Vocal Recital every quarter. We will premiere the recital on a private YouTube Channel that will allow your family and friends to fall in love with your super-human abilities as a phenomenal vocalist! I'm so excited to work with all of you again this year! It's going to be an exciting one!
