Summer Singing Intensives

 JULY SUMMER STUDIO INTENSIVES

Dear current students, alumni, colleagues and new people who I have yet to meet,

I am now preparing for my sixth Summer Intensive. Each year has expanded to include more and more people with independent and unique goals that they are striving for. This year, in addition to my own Toronto studio’s July Intensive, I have been invited back Downeast to teach two sessions (the first half of August) at SummerKeys, in beautiful Lubec, Maine. These two summer programs have very different atmospheres, but the common thread is the diversity of students – all ages, all levels, all styles of music and all walks of life. Please find all the information below for this year’s Intensives (including testimonials) and don’t hesitate to tell other colleagues and singing friends about both programs. Feel free to connect with me with questions or special requests. My July program in Toronto is really tailored to your individual needs! Please confirm your participation with me for that program by May 31st so that I can plan the details of the course. I’m excited and proud to take this into its successful sixth year!!

ABOUT THE TORONTO JULY 2017 SUMMER STUDIO INTENSIVE for ALL AGES

In July 2012, I created a special discounted summer study program for singers of any level and any age who wished to take time in the summer to explore their voice or continue their vocal studies at a much deeper level.  Well, it was a resounding success! The participants and I had a fantastic time and they  condensed so much learning in that month. In fact we all loved it so much that I am committed making it an annual tradition! This program I’ve designed is modelled after more traditional cultures’ approach to arts and music education, where the students meet with their teacher daily or frequently so that through immersion, constant support and a vibrant community, there is deeper learning, and development can flow rapidly. In July 2017, I will again offer two special packages at a substantially discounted rate. As we do each year at the end of the summer session I will lead a  performance masterclass at the end of the month (includes an accompanist) for all the students. Please tell your friends to join us. The more the merrier!
