June 7-11, grades 4-12: Half Day Virtual Camp
Singer's Bootcamp
1:1 Voice Coachings, Whole Group Masterclasses, & a Solfege Boot Camp with Miss Caity!

 

During this vocal pedagogy Summer Camp, students will learn proper vocal technique, bolster their musical literacy skills, and develop their inner ears. The goal of this program is to not only make your singers better solo performers, but also better musicians. This will make them self-sufficient in their craft, and ready to handle that next audition!

 

This camp will be limited to 15 participants so that each vocalist will receive two separate 1:1 voice lessons where their vocal technique strengths will be bolstered and weaknesses independently addressed. In addition, this number of singers will allow us to work on group numbers where we can focus on harmonizing, blending, and their associated techniques. 

 

Lastly, each participant will have the opportunity to participate in two intensive masterclasses. Masterclasses are a chance for vocalists to get live coachings as they perform solo in front of an audience of their peers. While this might sound scary, it allows for dynamic and interactive vocal growth, both for the audience and the performer alike."
10-12:30 each day, taught virtually over Zoom
