In this class, students are focusing on the emotional aspect of singing.

Developing an emotional connection with a song takes their skill set to the next level while they continue to build upon their vocal technique.
Students continue to develop vocal technique as they build their repertoire and discover what genre(s) of music they enjoy/ what type of songs compliment their voice. This class emphasizes the importance of self discovery in regard to vocal performance. They are given opportunities to experiment vocally and take risks on stage, aiding in their growth as young artists.
In this class, students are introduced to basic vocal warm ups, simple songs and performance techniques. Proper posture and breathing is taught to build a strong framework for vocalization. The primary focus for this age group is developing confidence in their vocal ability and becoming comfortable on stage while enjoying peer socialization.
