Theory & Musicianship for Singers

Ages: 8yrs+
Private Lesson Duration: 30m
Group Class Duration: 1hr

All singers deserve to be skilled musicians: able to read their music, learn their songs, and grow as collaborative artists. But as singers, we're often not taught the basic piano, music reading, and ear training skills that organically come with being an instrumentalist. This leaves us underprepared as musicians, lacking in collaborative skills and reliant on recordings to learn our music.

The perfect supplement to voice lessons and those singing in choirs, this series covers the basics of music reading and piano playing, rhythm, sight-stinging, and dictation ear training. Music theory and musicianship are the building blocks of the language of music. Through them, we learn to listen and hear, master our songs, and express ourselves.

Wildwood Playground: Theory & Musicianship for Children

Ages: 6yrs - 8yrs
Duration: 30min
Cap: 6 students/class

"Since the beginning of time, children have not liked to study. They would much rather play, and if you have their interests at heart, you will let them learn while they play; they will find that what they have mastered is child's play." -- Carl Orff

Music is natural to us. We learn it on the playground through clapping games, skipping rope, singing and dancing in a circle on the grass, through the steady rhythm of our heartbeat. The perfect supplement for young musicians, in this series students are introduced to rhythm, solfege, and pre-music-reading through games, singing, dancing, and playing a variety of percussion instruments.
