Private Voice Lessons
The Art of Singing with Joanne Vecchio
Sing from your heart: Touch a Listeners Soul.
Combining the traditional style of vocal instruction with music, poetry and visual arts
Ages 7 - Adult
Classes focus on vocal technique: practicing, vocalizing and breathing. Technique will be transferred from vocalizes to songs emphasizing vocal health, beauty of tone and effective musical interpretation. Song Anthology will be a mixture of folk songs, songs from movies and musical theatre, art songs, as well as contemporary styles of music and student work.
Musical interpretation instruction will be based on The Performance Cycle, an instructional model developed by the Arts Literacy Project through the Education Department at Brown University in accordance with research clearly demonstrating the strong casual link between arts-learning and academic performance.
The Performance Cycle provides teachers and artists with the framework for engaging students in a process of deep comprehension by building learning through centering on a text; in this case the lyrics of a song.
Students will also include a basic music theory, sight singing, performance technique and voice placement, singing all musical styles.
Recordings of students voices, as well as video's of performance / rehearsals will be made and used for teaching purposes.
Students will be encouraged to write their own lyrics and songs.
Student will also be encouraged to plan and star in their own solo show here in the Theatre at Second Stage Studio.
