This 90-minute vocal workshop is geared to singers of all levels in contemporary, non-classical styles. It is also meant for individuals who think they “can’t” sing but who would like to try. Participants will sing as a group, and those who are comfortable doing so will be encouraged to sing solo and receive customized instruction. Come explore your voice and learn to sing with more freedom, increased range, breath control, and flexibility.
