Learn to use the amazing variety and anatomy of the human voice. What it feels like, sounds like, looks like and how to use it to sing in any genre: classical, music theatre, jazz, pop and world traditions. The ability to isolate and control the vocal muscles structures provides the basis for all musical artistry, and readies students to take direction from casting agents and directors in school and in the arts performance business.

The instructor, Ben, was great and knowledgeable. He has great insight on music theory, keeps us motivated and has a passion for what he does. I looked forward to the class every week.
No, I think Ben did the best he could given the pandemic.
