I wanted to let you all know about a summer program I am running called "Sing for the Summer". I originally designed this program to give high school age singers an opportunity to keep their skills sharp while they were away from school. However, I soon realized that it was also a wonderful opportunity for beginners of all ages to get a taste of how lessons work and decide whether or not they would like to take lessons themselves.
Since I have a special program for children many parents have seen this as a chance to get their kids started. I have also had many mothers and fathers use this program to finally take those voice lessons they have always considered.
The course is intense and lots of fun, designed to get you started or keep you going. The fundamentals we focus on apply to any style. In other words, not everyone comes out of the eight lessons sounding like an opera singer (unless that is what you want). We work on fundamental techniques that every singer needs to work on, and then apply those techniques to whatever style you are most interested in.
The program also includes two master classes (taught by two of Florida State's finest singers), and for my students in Tallahassee, a recital on August 9th. One of my students will also win a free iPod nano!
An exciting new development this year is I am also offering this program online. I have been successfully teaching online for about a year now and have found it to be quite effective. So, if you have a webcam and a good internet connection this can be an option for you as well. You can use the eight lessons to see if it works for you, then go from there later.
If you have an interest, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can discuss this with you more. Again, it's a lot of fun, and slots are filling up really fast so let me know if you are interested ASAP!
Have a great day!
