Do-Re-Mi in the Morning (2 to 5 year olds)

Thursdays, 10:00 to 10:30 a.m.

This morning session will feature fun action songs designed to engage your child. Students are welcome to request their favourite songs, with new favourites being explored each week. Each session will end with a musical story.

Let’s Make Music! (5 to 7 year olds)

Wednesdays, 4:30 to 5:00 p.m.

Similar to the Do-Re-Mi morning class, the “Let’s Make Music” class will engage in fun action songs. Stretches and vocal warm-ups will be introduced to young singers as well as rhythm exercises. Each session will end with a musical story.

Virtual “Radio” Plays (reading age to 15)

Mondays, 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Young actors will have a chance to experience the thrill of using only their voices to create a full theatrical experience. An online play will be chosen based on the number of students registered for the class. We will work on dynamics, voice acting and learning a little about the popular radio plays from the 1940s. A recording will be made of the final session. Families will need to print their copy of the play at home.

Let Talk Technique (teens and adults)

Tuesdays, 5:00 to 6:00 p.m.

Each week we’ll discuss how the voice works. With delays over the internet it is not possible to sing all together online but that doesn’t mean we can’t find other ways to work together! This class will focus on the mechanics of singing and how it feels to sing with the sound you want to have.

Performance Practice (teens and adults)

Fridays, 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

It’s time to fly your butterflies in formation and get past the fear of performance. This class not only gives students the opportunity to perform but will also give us a platform to talk about performance.  If you decide to share your performance you will also be asked to discuss why you chose the piece as well as how you have worked on it.  You may present any art (not just singing) that you would like to share with a supportive audience as long as you talk about it.  We’ll talk about how to get past the nerves and present your best self in front of an audience.
