CPP's Voice (Singing) Club is an ongoing club that runs throughout the year. Participants learn and practice skills related to improving their ability to understand and to sing songs through activities designed to teach while having fun.
Areas of focus will include warm up techniques, voice control, breathing, various ways to "learn" songs, performance singing, proper singing techniques, basic score terminology and reading, finding your own natural vocal range and identifying the best songs for it, expanding your vocal range, making songs your own, understanding harmonies, timing, and much more.
At approximately 6 week intervals, eligible participants will have the opportunity to take part in a Showcase Performance that highlights the material each has worked on in the preceding period. In addition to the public Showcase Performance, participants will have the option to perform through other CPP/YTP programs!
