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.
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 class, and singing will be easier.
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. You’ll also learn the basics of building your own harmonies.
Do you have a melody in your head that you want to put chords to? Do you want to improvise but don’t know where to start? Maybe you’re learning a song but can’t find the chords online. I’ve got a class that will help with all of those things!
When you learn the “secrets” of how music is constructed, music-making becomes easier. Theory is most fun when you practice with others, so I’m offering a weekly class where we will practice music theory and ear training. It will not require homework or extra time between classes and you will be amazed at what you can learn in an hour a week.
Classes meet in South Austin.
