About the voice lessons... Care is given to address the specific desires and needs of each individual student, whether child or adult, amateur or professional. Students learn to understand and control the specific muscles that are a part of the vocal instrument. In general, the areas covered include: more breath for longer phrases; expanding the vocal range; eliminating the "break"; greater volume; more beautiful tone quality, etc.
About the conducting lessons... Basics of conducting patterns are mastered, with attention to posture and proper gestures for cuing, breath, cut-offs, rehearsal techniques, etc.
