Each Monday lesson will provide 90-minutes of instruction on the basics of singing and musicianship skills to theory and sight reading. After a break, we will warm-up as a choir and learn new music in a choral setting. We will offer time for students to form individual quartets as well as time for Tag Singing, a staple of Barbershop singing. Each student will receive individual instruction at one point within the program. The evening will end with refreshments and social time where students can put their skills to the test, talk about the program or work with some of the chapter members. All the necessary materials will be provided free of charge. You do not have to read music to enjoy this course. If you can sing in the shower or along with a radio or can carry a tune, want to become a better singer, learn the basics, or get experience in a group setting, this is for you.
These singing lessons and music instruction will be presented by Johnny Bosse, Director of the Palm Harbor Crystal-Aires, who teaches at Morgan Fitzgerald Middle School, owner of Eköh Music Studio, and works as a vocal coach around the USA. He has a several degrees in music performance, education and pedagogy, including certification in manual voice therapy.
