  Advanced Voices – Group Voice Lessons

AV is VOCE’s premier group. This class is made up of singers from 5th – 12th grade. (The inclusion of 5th grade singers requires approval after a vocal evaluation.) Singers are provided with voice lesson style classes each week in a group setting. Our focus is on healthy vocal techniques for solo and ensemble singing. These students are provided with the opportunity to expand their range and abilities as vocalists in all genres of music, with the comfort and safety of a group of voices, as well as the opportunity to observe and participate in individualized vocal instruction during class.

During the spring semester, students who were enrolled in the fall are also given the opportunity to participate in a Solo Vocal Production MasterClass. Each singer is given a 16-32 bar solo selection chosen specifically for their needs. They have multiple opportunities to sing in front of the group and recieve individualized instruction. This is not required, and students who choose not to participate as singers still participate in the MasterClass as observers and are given the opportunity to put their skills as vocalists to use by commenting on elements of technique that they recognize in their fellow singers. This is a wonderful opportunity for growth for all involved.

Advanced Voices is frequently contacted to perform solos and ensemble pieces throughout the community, and members are offered the opportunity to travel on educational and performance tours throughout the United States and abroad.  It is a developmental year, and we want to be certain that all students are provided with the best possible training experience.
