Event Overview

If you can talk, then you can sing!

The voice we use everyday to talk, laugh, and whisper is actually an instrument. Singing is just a matter of learning to play that instrument, and yes, everyone can learn to sing. Learn the basics of how to tune and play your instrument!

In the Intro to Singing workshop, vocal coach Cynthia Lin will lead the class through easy vocal warm ups with explanations of how the body is working to produce those sounds. Exercises include diaphragm breathing, opening the throat, humming, creating round vowel sounds and crisp consonants, intonation, and group singing. Understanding how the voice works will help you let go of your inhibitions, build confidence, and sing freely!

    I took the Intro to Singing class without ever having taken a singing class so I had no idea what to expect. I took it mainly because I was curious, and because I think I sing really well in my car - hahaha!! As soon as I arrived I knew it was going to be a fun class because the instructor, Cynthia, was so welcoming and friendly. There were about 10 of us and the whole class was done as a group rather than individuals having to do things on their own (scary!). We learned about tone and pitch and had a lot of fun! I would highly recommend taking a class from Cynthia and loosening up those vocal cords!

    From Teacher:

    Thanks Kristen! I'll be having more classes soon, hope to see you again! :)

    I was so nervous when i first walked in; Cynthia made us feel more relaxed- in just a few moments we were all singing together. She clearly enjoys what she does and taught a great class.
