Vocal Health and Technique for “Mature” Singers REGISTER HERE
Wednesday March 14, 5:00-6:15 pm. $20
As we progress through life our voices change, as can the impact of our health and physical state on our vocal health. In this workshop for older adults (55 and above), participants will learn about healthy vocal production and how to care for your voice.
Elizabeth is also available for private voice lessons at her Studio Amable surrounded by calming forest and rushing water in Kiosk (about an hour away on the north edge of Algonquin Park). Lessons can also be arranged “in town”. If you are interested in individual voice lessons or for additional information on lessons, contact Elizabeth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
