Summer Session Audition Masterclass for Ages 9-14 with Hilerie 

Alright.  So you know you want a part in your musical next year.  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.  My high school students are strong and confident auditioners which is why they are performing lead roles all over Pittsburgh and beyond.  Every trick that I teach them applies to students of all ages.  Plus, not only will you learn how to audition and work with a professional accompanist, but you'll get to practice in front of your friends!  And, if you can sing confidently in front of your friends, you can sing in front of anyone!  So, about that upcoming audition.....  Sign up for my Summer Session Audition Masterclass for ages 9-14 and get ready to blow their socks off?

Summer Session Voice Class Ages 9-14

Do you ever watch or listen to your favorite singer or band and think to yourself that you would love to be able to perform like them?  How do they do it?  Are they born with it?  Did they take lessons?  The answer for most them is yes!  Singing and performing is a skill that requires hard work.  So you want to learn to sing, but how do you get started?

Perhaps some of your friends take private voice lessons, and you have thought about doing so too, but the idea of standing in a room singing by yourself is flat out scary!  We have all been there!  So, what if you could do all that and improve your singing side by side with others who want to do the same.  

Welcome to Summer Session Voice Class for ages 9-14!  It's perfect for the student who's never taken private lessons and wants to see what learning how to sing is all about!  You will learn healthy 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 musical theatre the next, so you get the opportunity to try something new!  You can even try out some Italian music, and who knows?  You may surprise yourself and actually like it!  We will also have a performance day at the end of the second week 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 Beginning Sight Singing & Ear Training for ages 9-14

​Have an audition for your select choir coming up this Fall?  Are you spending your voice lessons 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.

For as long as you can remember, your child has sung around the house.  Sometimes it's humming in the kitchen, sometimes it's full out in their bedroom when they think no is listening.  They're singing in their school chorus and you can hear them singing in church and the car beside you.  Maybe you've signed them up for voice lessons already, or maybe they're coming home and telling you that their friends are taking lessons and you're not quite sure how or when to start.  And then they start telling you about the select choir and school musical auditions this September and now you know it's time.......
