Music & Voice Lessons

Private Voice Lessons
View info

Offered both virtually with Mary Gipe and in person with our resident Musical Director, students are taught how to develop their voice, focus on breath control and expanding high and low registers. Students may also utilize their time to work on pieces for what they are currently rehearsing; whether it’s a solo within a show at the CTPC, Zimra choir, or outside of the J.  Lessons are tailored to each student's skill level and interests.

Please note, students are responsible for bringing in their own sheet music unless expressed to the teacher that they’d like assistance with finding an appropriate score. Lessons can be arranged for either 30 minutes or 1 hour.
