Students should expect to learn vocalises that encourage healthy singing technique and a variety of repertoire. Lessons will focus mainly on classical art song unless the student requests that we delve into other types of music. Be ready to try new things and take risks! Lessons will always begin with a vocal warm up, followed by a short sight-singing exercise. We will then delve into study of their current repertoire. Students are expected to come to lessons prepared to discuss successes and challenges of learning their repertoire as to guide their study. If the study of music theory is needed in order to better understand the music at hand, the lesson could include some short theory exercises. Voice lessons are available in hour or half-hour sessions. Semesters are approximately 14 weeks long, and students receive one lesson per week in their semester fees unless other arrangements have been made. There are three semesters each year; Spring, Summer, and Fall. The Summer session is shorter with only 8 weeks to accomodate students' school schedules. Each semester will finish with a studio recital that students can participate in.
