Resound NW Group Voice Classes are an exciting way to learn more about your voice and increase your confidence as a singer.  Each class is a unique collective experience, designed to provide a supportive environment for learning.

Each class begins with a group warm-up.  The warm-up is a way to get our voices loose and our bodies moving.   It helps us become present to each other and prepare for our work together.

Following the warm-up, each student receives individual attention with the instructor.  This "mini-lesson" may cover areas such as:
  • Vocal technique
  • Song learning/preparation [read more]
