Small-Group Singing - Voice Lessons for Ages 6-9: Ongoing
Amanda Giese- B.S. in Vocal Performance & Theater
Ongoing intro to singing lessons in a small group setting. Learning builds each week, but students can join at anytime. Taught by a voice coach & professional singer with over 30 years of experience in teaching and performance.
These 30-minute small group introductory singing lessons with 3 to 6 students that meet once each week are designed to give young, beginning singers a look inside the world of voice training. Even though the learning build from week to week, students can jump in and enjoy the class whenever they join the class. Students will start to learn about breath support and correct breathing as it is the foundation for great singing. They may also learn a little about diction, posture, chest & head...
This class is taught in English.
Students will improve & build their vocal range, intonation (ability to sing on pitch), breath support, diction, and most importantly, confidence. Students will strengthen their acting skills and learn about healthy vocal production and vocal care because they are essential to being able to sing well.

Homework OfferedStudents will be encouraged to print out sheet music and practice the assigned song with the sing-along video posted to the classroom. They may also be given some vocal or breathing exercises that they may practice.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Students will be encouraged to print out sheet music if possible. PDF copies of sheet music will be posted in the classroom as well as links to YouTube video sing-alongs or an mp3 of the song. Those can be opened from the classroom page by clicking on it, so students can easily practice without having to open any other app or website. Having a strong wifi signal is important for singing on Zoom. If the teacher cannot hear the student or the feed keeps cutting out, it will be difficult to assess how the student is doing. Also, please keep in mind that Chromebooks do not work well for Zoom singing classes. They do not have enough processing power to keep up with audio and video. They also cut out the singer's audio on the higher pitches. It's best to try and use a laptop computer or desktop PC if that's available. Although it's not the best choice, an iPad could also work fairly well.
I will post links to the YouTube video sing-alongs to help them learn the song they are working on.
