Voice training is the process of learning techniques for speaking and singing that allow the performer to produce different sounds and voice qualities. These techniques can be complex, and incorporate posture, breathing, and a solid understanding of how the body physically creates sound.  Music and singing is something that most every child enjoys and can relate to. There has been much research done over the years, proving that children who are involved in music and the performing arts at a young age, often are much more successful in school academics (math and science) as well as having more confidence to speak in front of others or volunteer in a group setting.   I have created this vocal music program especially for the young singer as a fun and interesting way for them to learn about singing, how their voice works and how to sing beautifully and safely without "yelling" or "shouting" out vocal tones which could cause permanent vocal chord damage to a young child's voice. My vocal program for children will give the young performer a solid and safe foundation for singing both as a youngster and as their voice grows.

                   Youth Performance and Vocal training for kids

           Singing, Acting and Dancing/Musical Theater Training


Playhouse Singers students meet for 2 hours each week for training in singing, acting and dance. The Playhouse Singer spends weekly class time learning how to use their voice as their instrument while being introduced to fun and lively music styles that they enjoy.  Children will become aware of basic musicianship skills such as recognizing note names and reading the music staff, learning to count beats and rhythm patterns as well as learning how to sing vocal melodies and harmonies in a small ensemble setting.  Children in this class learn proper breathing skills for singing and also how to make the best vocal production for the young voice.  The class also incorporates fun interactive drama exercises that allow the children an opportunity to learn basic acting skills and get more confident reading a script.  Children will learn how to portray emotions and dramatic situations for their peers while acting out improvised scenes in a small group. The dance portion of the  class  teaches the children basic movement and body balance, proper warm ups of the muscles and how to do basic choreography with singing on stage for live performance purposes.  

All This training prepares them for their big day on stage! I organize and offer several performing opportunities during the year for the Playhouse Singers to gain experience performing on stage in front of a live audience.
