INTRO TO MUSIC CLASS (Children ages 5 – 8)
 This class was created for the young singer who loves music, wants to sing, yet may not be ready for the intensity of private voice lessons and solo performance. This class will be structured like a lesson, however it will have a few more students so they feel more comfortable and will feel less intense. Classes are small and students can still receive some individual attention and basic technique while singing songs together. See Calendar for schedule The cost is $240 ($20 per class), per student for a 12-week session This class will perform a Recital at the end of each 12-week session • This class serves as an excellent introduction to the dedication and work required for any young student interested in singing. Students need to commit to the weekly class for a semester (12 weeks) at a time so that they can perform together at the end of the session. Students depend on each other. Students can take this prep class for as long as they want until they reach 9 years old.
