At Vocal Intensive studios we design our lessons to meet the needs of the individual adult voice student. Experienced or not, we help to find and build your voice through our specialized yet common-sense vocal technique. Whether learning how to “belt” for a musical or “scream” properly in a metal band, we prepare students for auditions, recording sessions and live performances.
For our elementary through high school aged students, a typical semester includes weekly private lessons, two group classes and a recital. We believe vocal technique is not a “one size fits all” for each student and we cater our lessons to meet the needs of each individual child. We build confidence in our students through performance and community involvement in local competitions and showcases throughout the year.
At Vocal Intensive Studios we offer group performance classes to give students an opportunity to perform in front of peers to gain confidence and develop stage presence in a safe and comfortable environment. We are looking forward to hosting various leaders in the art community to share their knowledge in group classes and workshops.
