Introductory lessons are offered and encouraged for students that never had a voice lesson before! During the introductory lesson we can discuss your personal goals, make an assessment of your voice type through vocal exercises (vocalizes), a detailed explanation about our work together will be explained to you, repertoire, or anything else you’d like to go over including details for registration. The purpose is to hear you where you are now and learn how far you want to go with your singing. I will then be able to create custom-made lesson plans to benefit your goals and dreams. Students over 12 years old should take a 45 minute or 60 minute introductory lesson.
The Beginner Package (individual lessons) is for all students that had 0 or a few voice lessons before today. The student can be as young as 7 years of age or as 77 years of age.
Power Performance Package
The Power Performance Package (individual lessons) is for all students that are 100% performance oriented (high school, undergraduate, graduate, professionals, and returning voice students or avocational singers).
I successfully prepare students for University or College music programs auditions. Preparation includes both performance skills and music theory. Ages 14 to 77.
The Duo Package is for students that want to share a lesson. A great choice for two best friends or for two siblings to learn together. Lessons are scheduled for two participants, and are forty-five minutes to an hour in length. It will be the responsibility of the two students sharing the lesson time to contact each other with any arising conflicts to arrange for the other student to trade that lesson.
Sing. Soar. Succeed Package
The Sing•Soar•Succeed•Package takes you to another level of performance. This is a select class (workshop) for intermediate to advanced singers where together students will explore the power of music and the magic of becoming a character (personaggio) that culminates with a final performance at the end of the semester. Sing•Soar•Succeed class is a very popular class among students at Mariana's Vocal Arts. The repertoire is composed of scenes from various operas, operettas and musicals. This is recommended for all students (preferable students over 16 years of age until 70 years of age) that have had previous voice lessons and want to explore deeper the performance aspect of these three very popular genres. All students enrolled in this class MUST be enrolled in voice lessons and must be committed to the one time a week class for 2 hours. In order to have this class at least 7 students must be enrolled in the class by the second week of September or by the end of January.
Mini Singers: ages 6-9 years and Fearless Singers: ages 10-15 years
Group voice classes are offered to all students that love to sing and want to be part of a group rather than singing a solo song. As a parent, you are thrilled to see your “rising star” learning healthy vocal technique while making new friends and developing the confidence to sing in front of an audience. More information and registration here!
