Singer-Songwriter Workshop


Have you ever wanted to write a song for your girlfriend or boyfriend? Do you have a burning desire to share an experience with the world through music and lyrics? Do you have a character in your belly that needs to be heard? Do you just love music and want to write a song, but don’t know how to begin, or how to proceed from an initial inspiration? And do want a supportive environment of peers to help you find your voice and your style? Well, if so, this Singer-Songwriter Workshop is for you! 


In this 2 week long workshop, you will compose music and lyrics for an original song. Each day an educational topic on the process will be covered. We will start from a concept, or initial idea, and proceed to development of drafts. We'll cover literary terms and theory, some basic music theory, song structure and other relevant topics to help you organize your ideas and put them onto paper and into song.   As we progress through the workshop, you'll bring copies of lyrics with chord changes to class so you can get feedback and comments from the other participants.  Through the workshopping process, you'll hone your own composing skills and help others do the same.  By the end, you will have a completed song that you'll perform for your peers and to the general public. The only required materials are a spiral notebook, sharpened pencils, and a creative, open mind!

Summer Session Voice Class Ages 14-18

Never taken voice lessons before?  Have you been doing cover songs at home and are ready to take your skills to the next level?  Are you thinking of starting a band or are struggling to feel comfortable singing in the band you are in now?  Are you a freshman who loves to sing, but the idea of performing in front of your peers sounds impossible?  If you're ready to change all of that, then we have class for you.  

Summer Session Voice Class For Ages 14-18 is the perfect way to start.  You may be wondering, what happens in a voice lesson?  How can a voice teacher help?  Aren't you just born with talent, or not? How do warm-ups help?  Can I make my voice louder?  Stronger?  Higher?  Can it be easier to sing?  Yes, yes, yes and yes. You can absolutely improve and strengthen your voice and wouldn't it be nice to do it while singing side by side with others who want to do the same?  

We will talk about healthy technique and practice ways to improve your range, breathing, dynamics, and how to fix weak places in your voice.  We will focus on a pop song for a day or two and move on to a musical theatre piece the next so you get the opportunity to try something new!  Never thought you could or would want to sing a country song?  You can even try out some Italian music, and who knows?  You may surprise yourself and actually like it!    And then at the end of the second week, you'll have the opportunity to perform in front of your friends and families to showcase the incredible work you did!  Don’t worry, you will have the support and love of everyone and we will all cheer you on!  That is what Higher Voice Studio is all about.  All you need is a love of singing, willingness to learn, and an open mind.  Come sing with us this summer!

If you aren't singing along to the radio, you're arranging your own cover songs and posting them to Instagram.  You've thought about writing a song, but only gotten as far as the lyrics, or maybe you've written a couple of songs in your bedroom, but haven't taken the leap and shown them to anyone...let alone sung them for anyone!  


Maybe school chorus and the musical isn't your thing, but did you know that Michael Jackson took lessons?  And Christina Aguilera?  How did these famous singers develop their unique vocal styles that made them so famous?  Did you know that if you learn to sing well, you can sing anything?  What about learning to read music?  You've always wanted to and now's your chance!

Summer Session Beginning Sight Singing & Ear Training for ages 14-18


​Are you hoping to major in contemporary voice in college?  Did you know that Belmont and Berklee's Contemporary Voice College Programs have sight singing and ear training as part of their entrance exams?  Are you spending your voice lessons and hard earned money learning your songs, then forgetting parts, then remembering, then making mistakes, then fixing them, then making them over and over and over again?  Do you wonder how your friends can look at the music and know what it sounds like?  Wouldn't it be nice to learn songs faster?  Wouldn't it be nice to learn more songs?  


What if we could teach you to sing the music on the page in front you?  What if those dots and lines actually made sense?   Just like you look at a book and know what the words sound like, you could look at that page of music and do the same!  Come take our two week Beginning Sight Singing & Ear Training Summer Session with Caitlin and get started!  We can bet that learning how to read music is easier than half the classes you're taking in high school and will only make you a better song-writer and singer.  Learn about rhythms, keys, intervals and chords and you will begin to read music like you read English!  It can be that simple... and fun!​  And here's the good news.  The sooner you start, the easier it is.
