Our rolling four week sections of classes alternate weekly between a 1.5 hour Meisner technique class the first and third weeks of the month & a 2.5 hour singing class the second and fourth weeks. An accompanist is provided for our in-person classes and either singing with a track or a cappella is acceptable for our online classes. Our classes are intimate, connected spaces where all genres of music and levels of ability are welcome.
