This is a course designed for the beginning adult avocational singer. If you love singing along to the radio, in a choir, or have always wanted to take voice lessons but have never taken the leap, this class is for you!
Each week we will discuss a different aspect of the art of singing, followed by practical application of the skills learned in class. Topics will include breath to pitch relationship, body awareness, balance, psychology in singing, tone, pitch, sympathetic vibrations of sound, and singing as meditation. Students will learn a group song, and will have the opportunity to prepare a song of their choosing to workshop and perform in a safe, friendly, and student-oriented learning environment.
Practice time outside of class is optional.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I loved Beginning Voice Class! It was so helpful to have the chance to support each other and give and get feedback from my peers, and I loved that the class was small enough to allow for individual attention. I felt that Emma was so patient, and her teaching skills are outstanding. I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn to sing.

Ideal participants have an innate love of singing, have desire to build community with other women, and wish they had an occasion to sing more often and/or with more confidence.
September 4th - October 23rd, 2019
5:30 - 7:00pm
In this hands-on workshop, each woman will learn vocal exercises to improve their solo singing, and have the opportunity to ask technical questions in a safe and supportive group learning environment. My aim in this course is not only to teach the fundamentals of singing with efficient tone, functionality, range, and power, but to also share the ways a singing practice can be a practice for women to enhance their own self-expression and creativity without fear or harsh judgement.
A portion of each class will also be devoted to discussion based on readings, podcasts, and videos drawn from the fields of psychology, sociology, spirituality, body mechanics, ontology, the Alexander Technique, and intersectional feminism.
This class will be an intimate and powerful container for self-discovery and growth. If you self-identify as a womxn, you are welcome in this class.
Recommended time outside of class devoted to readings and/or personal practice: 30-60 mins
Every Third Tuesday
