This training prepares youth and teen performers who want to perform in the season productions.  The performers meet weekly and these students have a rotation of dance, drama, and vocal training that prepares them for and meets the needs of the production.  These are our elite performers for productions. 

Private vocal is comprised of weekly sessions that focus on vocal performance, breathing technique, vocal control, and overall performance. The goal is to increase vocal range and to guide singers to their individual vocal style while establishing a repertoire of songs they can perform.  

Performance coaching prepares youth and teens for acting and vocal performances, and auditions.  We provide professional coaching, feedback, and development tools for the young performer to go to the next level.
