Summer Session Voice Class Ages 14-18

Never taken voice lessons before?  Have you ever wondered how your friends and classmates are able to get lead roles in the musical?  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!

Summer Session Audition Masterclass for Ages 14-18 with Hilerie 

Alright.  So, you know you want a part in your musical next year.  Maybe you want to major in musical theater in college.  You have auditions coming up.  You know you'll have to learn a song or two, memorize some lines..... and then what?  How is it that everyone seems to do the same thing, but some people get the parts and others don't?  Is there more to it?  If everyone is singing the same song, how do you stand out from the crowd?  If you get to pick your own song, how do you know what to pick?  When you walk in the door for your audition, how do you introduce yourself?  What do you wear?  And how do you stay CALM!?!?  Take a deep breath.  I'm here to help.  

You need the information, yes, but you also need experience.  You need to learn how to audition, and then you need to practice it over and over and over again until it becomes second nature.  Then in your most nervous moments, you have a process to rely on.  My high school students are strong and confident auditioners which is why they are performing lead roles all over Pittsburgh and beyond.  In the Summer Session Audition Masterclass for Ages 14-18 you will not only learn how to audition and work with a professional accompanist, but you'll get stage time to practice!  We'll cover the nuts and bolts of auditioning like choosing repertoire that best suits you and how to pick a 32 bar cut of music,  but we'll also have mock auditions in front of the class so that everyone can learn together.  You can do this and I can help.  So, about that upcoming audition.....

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

​Have an audition for your select choir coming up this Fall? Are you hoping to major in music in college? 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?  Are you ready to impress your family, friends and music teachers?  

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!  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.
