A Cappella Anyone?

Four Month Class
Cost: $100.00

Class Description: A Cappella Anyone? A cappella is the purest form of singing, producing harmonies unencumbered by accompanying instruments.  This group will explore various genres of a cappella music from madrigals to jazz to pop. “Pitch Perfect” is not necessarily the end goal but can be attempted if there is a solid beatboxer out there. The repertoire chosen will depend on the vocal makeup of the class. We will spend a portion of each class developing your skills with vocal exercises and building upon those skills throughout the duration of the class session. The remainder of each class will be spent rehearsing music with the end goal of performance. Join us and grow your vocal and part-singing skills in a fun filled environment.
