Classes & Workshops

Whether you want to hone your harmony skills or refine your singing skills, I offer a variety of classes and workshops for you. 

Vocal boot camp

Are you ready to take your singing to the next level? Learning a song is the first step, but what about bringing that song to life? Would you like to become so immersed in your performance that you don’t think about “acting” or words or any of the other things that might distract you? I’ve combined elements of vocal technique, song study, community building and singing therapy to create an environment that supports each student in their journey toward being a better singer. You will feel more confident and comfortable on stage by the end of this 4 week class, and singing will be easier.

vocal harmony

Singing with others makes you happier and studies show that people who sing in groups live longer.  I love stats like that! This class will bring joy to your life as you learn the harmonies to some of your favorite songs, while also learning how to choose a harmony line. I provide everything you need to succeed, including mp3 tracks to make practicing easy and convenient.

DIAMONDS & PEARLS

We’re gonna do some R&B classics and discover the secrets of their music-making. Songs on deck are: “Mountains” (Prince), “Like You’ll Never See Me Again” (Alicia Keys), “Back in my Arms Again” (Supremes), “Dedicated to the One I Love” (The Shirelles), “Sail On” (The Commodores), and “Mr. Telephone Man” (New Edition).

Tuesdays at 7pm: 9/24, 10/1, 10/8, 10/15

Stones & chains

We had so much fun with hard rock harmonies that I wanted to spend a little more time on ‘em. This time we’re gonna open the spectrum from The Rolling Stones to Alice In Chains.

Sundays at 4pm: 11/3, 11/10, 11/17, 11/24

HARD ROCK HARMONIES
