This vocal class is designed to help students discover and develop their voices. The students will learn a variety of classical vocal techniques and exercises that help them learn/correct, use operatic singing style, and create longevity for their voices. Students will also learn proper belting techniques and how to sing pop/rock style/Broadway music. Both of these vocal styles will be explored while also learning the basics of how to read music! If you are planning to audition for The Lightning Thief and/or The Phantom of the Opera, this class is for you!
