Children & Teens

When working with children and teens, whose voices are still developing, my primary objective is to train a well-rounded musician.   I teach them how their instrument works, cross-training the voice in multiple styles, while encouraging exploration, confidence, and curiosity.

Pre-teen and teenaged singers work regularly on:

  • rudiments of theory/reading music
  • musicianship & aural skills
  • sight singing
  • acting and storytelling skills
  • repertoire from both the Royal Conservatory of Music songbook series (in multiple languages)
  • musical theatre or popular music repertoire, or other music according to their interest.

We also occasionally work on ensemble selections and introduce harmony singing, poetry speaking, and monologues.
