Voice lessons allow students to choose their own songs and our instructors will guide them based on their unique gifts and talents.  We strongly encourage students to branch out to different styles of music including, rock, pop and classical,  all while learning fundamentals of technique.  We find it important that during voice lessons students should learn to breathe correctly, create a clear tone, project and understand melody and phrasing.
