Vocals

Vocal students at the House of Music get to choose their own songs, putting them in the driver’s seat of their musical development.

They will also be strongly encouraged to sing in a variety of styles, such as rock and pop, through learning essential skills such as voice projection, microphone technique, the creation of a clear vocal tone and correct breathing techniques while gaining a greater understanding of melody and harmony in music. Vocal students are urged to enhance their private study by working with one of the appropriate performance ensembles, since this is the way most vocal music is actually performed. The ability to interact with other musicians, matched by age and ability, provides a powerful stimulus for learning and creates an exciting performance and social setting for a student’s overall musical growth and development.

Private lessons for students involved in our performing groups are designed to develop independent musical skills as well as to support the instruction received in the group rehearsals. Ensemble playing enhances a student’s ability to hear and respond to music as it is most frequently played. The group setting also provides powerful social reinforcement for music appreciation and encourages practicing.
