The three best things that you can do to support your singer's musical development are:
Encourage a habit of daily practice
Consider private voice lessons
Keep your student singing over the summer
Keep Your Student Singing!
Taking the next step with private lessons:
Students who wish to take their singing to the next step should consider taking private voice lessons. Private lessons give students the opportunity to receive one-on-one feedback and instruction from a professional musician. This allows students to develop their technical skills and musicianship in a focused, personalized environment. Most voice teachers schedule weekly private lessons. To find out more about how you can get your student in private lessons, please contact a choir director!
Summer musical experiences:
Students who stay involved with music over the summer have an easier time retaining and developing their skills. Summer music camps can be fun, educational, and musically rewarding experiences for students. Having positive musical experiences outside of school is an important step in becoming a life-long learner of music.
There are many summer camps out there, however the following are a few that we recommend. In most cases, there are opportunities for both merit and need-based scholarships through the camps. If you are interested in finding out more about potential scholarship opportunities, please contact a choir director.
