This is a wonderful opportunity to work one-on-one with an experienced teacher to address personal vocal goals. Proper vocal technique (which includes understanding the vocal instrument, enhancing your breath support, addressing vowel formation, and becoming consistent with vocal placement) can be applied to any musical style.
These private sessions enable vocalists to gain control over how they sing, develop a range of choices they can consciously choose from to deliver the style they desire, and maintain a healthy voice in any performing situation.

- Improve your vocal technique
