Sing For the Stage (or just for the joy of it)
Sundays, January 11- Feb 15
11 am – 1pm
Singing is effortless when you are grounded in solid technique and connected to your “authentic” voice. Whether you sing in your church, temple or school choir, are a dancer who loses confidence when having to sing, a young artist who is preparing for your college auditions, or you’re just beginning to sing again after decades of hiatus, Alisa’s “Authentic Voice Technique” can give you the tools to create a healthy foundation as well as avoid the vocal strain or burnout that can come from singing incorrectly. The class will introduce essential voice & audition techniques that can be used in any performance or audition setting. Artists are free to focus on their existing repertoire or work on new songs to expand their repertoire.
