Openings for Voice Lessons

January 24, 2020

Center for Young Musicians has openings for lessons in singing. Why not schedule a four lesson trial for your student! In that time, our voice teacher, Ms. Lindsay, can coach for upcoming auditions, work on a school performance, or just get your student started on the right track! When you think about it, all music students should have these major goals for their studies: that they can 1) look at a page of music and hear it in their head, and 2) to be able to sing their part! All musicians, of every instrument, should be able to match pitch and sing their music. This is the perfect time to round out your student’s musical studies. Call or visit the website to schedule a four lesson trial today! (724) 935-0505
