• Signature Songs, with Bob Garrett, Tuesday nights starting 5/7 (8 wks)
Bob Garrett was a signed artist, Broadway star, Motown staff writer, and vocal coach to the stars. He is uniquely qualified to teach this class that is part artist development, part vocal performance. "All decisions that you make in your career as a singer-songwriter need to live 'under an umbrella' of how you wish the world to see you," Bob notes, "so your creative and business decisions are all made with one vision.  Once you have that vision, while it may change as your career progresses, your focus as an artist becomes clear and your in-studio and onstage performances will direct and catapult you to the artist status you so richly deserve."

• The Art of Performance, with Joy Graysen, Wednesday nights starting 5/8 (8 wks)
Joy Graysen is part vocal performance coach and part spiritual teacher. This class will unlock your potential as a singer and communicator, identify and overcome your fears, and connect you deeply to your voice, your material, and your audience.


  • Vocal Technique Level 1, with Ingrid Schnell, Thursday nights starting 5/16 (6 wks)

Learn to play the instrument you were born with, and with confidence, joy, health, and increased range and versatility. Learn proper breathing and support, vowel placement, cord connection, and more. In a mix of solo and group singing, learn and grow alongside fellow singers as you work on material, high notes, connecting your voice through your breaks (or bridges), and so much more. For inexperienced looking to learn and intermediate singers looking to grow.
