SINGING FOUNDATIONS combines group exercises with one-on-one attention. Come prepared to learn AND have fun! Everyone will sing at once, you will sing on your own, and you will learn by watching others sing.
Every class includes a short lecture portion where Spencer will walk you through the necessary theory you need to know, and then it's time to apply, apply, apply!
We ensure personal attention by limiting class enrollment to 6 students max. (A minimum of 5 registrants is required for the course to proceed.)
