SoulSinging Classes

Registration is open!

SoulSinging is now meeting in a hybrid format which includes in person and online options.  Proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required to attend class in person.

What is SoulSinging?

SoulSinging is an innovative group singing journey that is equal parts choir, singing class, and supportive community. While exploring exciting and diverse musical styles, this group empowers participants to be holistic, mindful singing artists. Focusing on the skills and attention required to create dynamic ensemble performances, participants will learn the potency of singing together.

SoulSinging includes the following:
* Weekly classes with engaging group and solo singing and occasional public performances
* Diverse musical styles rich in harmony, rhythm, and inspiring lyrics, such as folk music from around the world, classical choral music, contemporary pop, musical theater, jazz, and group improvisation
* Opportunities to hone your skills both as an ensemble singer and as a solo artist
* A supportive and safe cohort of people with whom to learn and take new risks
* Extensive coaching from the Resound NW staff to work on your musical skills. The Resound NW staff has years and years of experience teaching voice and performing professionally. We have taught hundreds of people from all walks of life to sing. 
* Observe the measurable progress happening with your voice and the voices of the other students in your group

Ultimately, we will learn that we are not alone. We will learn that there is endless possibility with our singing. And we will unlock the full potential to express ourselves through our voices.

We look forward to taking this journey together!

Time: Wednesday evenings, 5:30-7:00 pm

"I think SoulSinging is superb and Daniel is a complete delight as a teacher. I’m happy to report that this class was even better than I had hoped it would be. The instructor, Daniel, made me feel very welcome from the minute I walked in the door and the sense of community was very apparent as everyone seemed genuinely glad to have me there. I loved the warm up and the round of singing games that were played at the beginning of class. Everyone participated and it was a blast. Daniel has a talent for picking the correct song for your voice so you actually feel comfortable. The entire group is extra warm and supportive so that anyone will feel successful."
- Nancy S.
