Note Worthy Voice Lessons and Westside (Albuquerque) Homeschool Choir
A little description about both of these....... In Voice lessons students will learn to deliver a song so it shows their "best voice" through various vocal techniques such as raising the soft palette in order to focus the pitch, breath energy, tone quality, vowel modification, painting a song and staging.
In choir students will learn to sing with other students and gain excellent breathing and tone quality techniques through simple warm ups. They will learn to follow a written piece of music vocally as well. We produce two performances a year one around Christmas and then usually a full musical (broadway style) during the spring time.
