Independent vocal instruction is a valuable tool for young singers to discover their full potential. While private lessons are not a required part of the vocal music curriculum in Lake Orion, they are highly encouraged and available to all our students.
One-on-one instruction allows for careful investigation of the student’s voice, opportunity for vocal growth, and appropriate literature selection. A consistent lesson schedule develops a beneficial regimen of practice, discipline and vocal aptitude. Students will have the opportunity to perform in master classes, recitals, and state solo/ensemble festivals during the school year. Students can work to prepare for honor choirs, college scholarship auditions, and other competitive events. Regular practice will maximize a student’s vocal development.
Students study solo voice after school at Oakview Middle School or at the private teacher's home studio.
Students often take one lesson per week for 30 minutes. Study in a private studio is a commitment on the part of the teacher, student, and parents. Therefore, it is expected that this arrangement between the above parties will be maintained for a minimum of one semester. Studying for longer periods or bi-weekly rotation may be available.
Costs for each lesson are determined by the studio teacher. It is expected that lessons are pre-paid at the beginning of each month. Payments must be made directly to the private teacher. Students may be responsible for payment of accompanist fees when needed.
