Course Details

Many people ~ both school-age students and adults alike ~ want to sing, but have been discouraged by teachers, family, and friends.  Our culture has such a strong preference that only people who are the most skilled should sing, dance, or paint, and this course is designed from a very different perspective.  Everyone can sing, and in this course, students will explore their own personal strengths, interests, and voice in an environment that is fun, creative, and above all, encouraging. 

During this course, students will:

  • Explore their own voice with curiosity, including tone quality, range, dynamics, and expression
  • Engage in exercises designed to connect the voice and body awareness
  • Explore important elements of technique, posture, and breath control
  • Experiment with singing in a variety of styles and genres, and also focus on particular songs and styles of interest to the student
  • Learn a balance between wanting to grow and improve as a singer, and the challenges that arise through too much self-criticism and judgment
  • Explore opportunities to sing in daily life ~ from karaoke to kirtan, from joining a band to joining a choir, to singing with friends, family, and community, and even considering dreams of recording an album.  Lessons meet students where they are and ask them to consider their goals and dreams
  • For students who have a strong desire to sing, but who also have big creative and mental blocks, lessons offer a space for processing self-limiting stories, while also bringing in exercises and processes that help them to transform those blocks into opportunities.
  • Students are not required to read music at first, and Angela will evaluate whether that may be an appropriate direction as lessons continue.
