Private lessons are adapted to the student’s needs, from younger students just beginning to develop their instrument to adults revisiting a neglected talent or capitalizing on an exceptional one. Many students are preparing for auditions and competitions including All Region/All District/All State, Solo and Ensemble, Texoma NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing), as well as smaller local festivals. Others are preparing for auditions of choirs or shows or developing parts already acquired. Any student serious enough about music to be a college music major should be preparing with private lessons. The competition is fierce and a musician can never be too prepared!
MUSICAL THEATRE VOICE LESSONS
Singing for musical theatre requires the knowledge of both classical and more modern music forms. Our musical theatre instructor teaches students how to adapt their voices to whatever situation a song requires, ensuring that students are well rounded in whatever music styles they wish to learn. For example, singing “Phantom of the Opera” requires tall vowels and darker tones while a show like “Hairspray” needs a little more brassiness and bright tones. Some students specifically want to work on popular music.
No prior knowledge of music is necessary to take musical theatre voice lessons, but we do recommend a starting age of around 9-12 years old for this type of lesson.
Group Classes consist of 2 or more students. Placement in a class is based on age, skill level, and availability in the teacher’s schedule.
Rockwall School of Music is excited to be a community supporter of the Rockwall Youth Choirs organization. Many of the RSM elementary and middle school voice students participate in this professional choral organization.
