Mondays, from 7 to 8 p.m., is a beginning class. Relaxation exercises, gentle warm-ups, and easy (but beautiful!) songs. This class is about basic voice production: staying in tune, practice harmonizing, not straining your voice. All questions welcome. Depending on the level and interests of who is there, we will include some music theory and phonetics.
Mondays, from 8 to 9 p.m., is an "intermediate/advanced" class. Each month we tend to focus on a different style of traditional music, although sometimes we are working on a few at once. Included with the session fee is a small songbook of related material. We have been having a lot of fun exploring Tuvan music, including some throat-singing. We are also singing songs in Georgian, Japanese, Hungarian, and even English!
The fee for either Monday class is $10; both together is $15.
Theory and sight-singing
Currently, there is a class in session on Thursday nights from 7:30 to 9 p.m., focusing on beginning sight-singing and theory, following Kodály methodology. It will be open to new intermediate-level students in January. At that time, I will offer a new beginning class as well.
The fee for a 6-week theory bundle is $100.
