FAC Voice Studio

Music Department 

The Voice program at the Fine Arts Center is designed to train the student as a complete vocal artist.  

Each student is given one-on-one vocal training in both master class and private instruction settings.  Students will study vocal technique, singer's diction in English, Italian, French, and German, as well as a wide range of musical repertoire spanning classical and musical theater genres. In addition, students will train as "singing actors" which will incorporate acting techniques that will help them become communicative, versatile, and creative vocal artists.  Singers in the program will receive basic keyboard skills woven in to the class structure taught by collaborative pianist, Sherry Parrini.  Music Theory is a required elective for the vocalists in the program. Music Theory education is essential to becoming a strong musician. Students receive college level training that will prepare them for higher education.  Several exciting performance opportunities will be available to the voice students such as recitals, regional competitions, fully staged scenes programs, and master classes with guest artists from around the country.
