Vocal Arts Classes

Developing Young Voices 

Welcome to Wesleyan's Teaching Studios! We're thrilled you found us. 

Vocal Arts classes will be offered for 8 weeks in the fall and 10 weeks in the spring. Students may participate in one o the other, but are encouraged to enroll in both to get the most from the classes. 

Young singers can develop a good singing voice if encouraged and guided at an early age. All classes take into consideration the individual advancement of each singer and support form the entire group is encouraged. Singers will be able to share their talents as they are ready in a variety of settings.
