Voice - Private Lessons 

With rare exception, Vocal Training is not offered to girls younger than 13 and boys younger than 15 years. However, any child will benefit from Vocal Coaching: learning breathing technique, singing in tune, pronouncing sounds clearly while singing.  

 

Ensembles

Singing in an ensemble is especially good: additionally to all benefits of vocal coaching, ensemble participants sing in parts, so their listening and musicality develop tremendously.  Repertory is mostly Broadway and popular, but some classical arrangements are included. 

Our very own "Sun and Chocolate" group (11-12 yrs.) participated in the Golden Key Music Festival this spring and won gold medals. They've performed in Carnegie Hall.

FAMILY MUSIC MAKING

Family Music Party will be held in the middle of December. For children, experience of making music together with their parents and siblings is invaluable. For parents, it is another opportunity to spend meaningful time with their children, to brush up their forgotten skills and to take a break from their everyday stress. And after all, it is just FUN for all! We know that a lot of our students' parents are very musical, talented do love music. They sing, they play guitar, piano, clarinet, violin... We will help you to choose a song for your family ensemble resources and level, whether it is vocal performance or any combination of singing and instruments. We will help you to create a simple arrangement. And then you will share your song with other musical families - in a low-pressure, enjoyable social atmoshpere.
