Adult Group Singing: Choral Singing & Musicianship 101
Have you ever wanted to pause choir rehearsal and get a quick download of all the things you don’t understand yet? Maybe you get along just fine, but good luck trying to explain it or help someone new. If you’re an aspiring or even longtime choral singer/musician, this 10-week class will help you become a better and more knowledgeable singer. Along the way, discussion and flexibility will let you bring up confusing situations or a question you’ve always had (even if you’ve been singing for YEARS!). No question is a dumb question. See you online!
