A Cappella Anyone?

Twelve-Week Class
Cost: $100.00

Class Description: 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!
