Group Vocal Coaching

The Center is thrilled to partner again with Todd Neal for a vocal instruction/coaching course. During the course, students learn song selection, vocal technique, and interpretation. Students completing the course will have a better understanding of performance, delivery, projection, and stage presence. The class is for anyone who enjoys performing and would like to improve their vocal delivery. 

The class is limited to 20 participants and is recommended for teens and adults. 
No previous vocal training required. 


Here’s What Participants Had to Say

“I loved the experience because everyone was very supportive. Todd was an amazing coach that brought out the best in everyone.”

“It was just so much fun especially due to the knowledge, talent, well rounded ability and exuberance from a very good coach who made us all feel good about our singing.” 

“I learned to be more confident in my singing, even if I missed a note or screwed up a line. I also learned to choose music that fits my voice rather than try to sing songs that are well known, but are rather difficult for me to sing. I took from the class to not be afraid and be bold.”
