Sing beautifully with confidence!

Understanding the essentials of good singing builds confidence. Jocelyn emphasizes healthy posture, proper breath management, and muscular control to improve vocal tone. As you begin to master the art of singing, performing becomes more effortless and fun.

Voice students record each lesson and take notes afterwards in their Voice Journals. Progress is made with regular practice outside of lessons

Challenge your comfort zone!
"If you can talk, you can sing. If you can walk, you can dance." ~ African proverb
Feeling shy? That's perfectly normal. If you have the desire to sing, you also have the ability to make your dream a reality. Voice Lessons are for professionals and serious amateurs who value taking their musical talent to the next level.

Students are accepted to Kaspermusic Conservatory based on their level of commitment to studying music. They will be expected to enroll in regular weekly lessons and remain in the studio for at least one full academic school year, 30 weeks, September through April. Additional lessons may be scheduled for the summer months.

Students may begin with Private or Small Group Voice Lessons*, depending on scheduling and other considerations. Make your selection when registering on our interactive Enrollment Application

GROUP VOICE LESSONS

Students are also welcome to take shared lessons with friends or family members. Small Group Voice Lessons* are for children and adults who love to sing. Ms. Kasper uses easy-to-follow instructions to help students understand singing through a process of fun, educational discovery.

Students learn:

  • natural voice use
  • healthy tone production
  • the fundamentals of music
  • a variety of age-appropriate songs
  • poise, confidence, performance skills
  • how to prepare for talent shows, auditions, church solos, etc.
It was once believed that children needed to mature before their voices could be trained. Some people still believe this myth. While it is true that some skills take time to develop, good vocal habits can be taught at a young age. Training should be done with special care and attention to the needs of growing voices.

At our conservatory, we love planting seeds of musical excellence and watching our talented sprouts grow.

Beginning musical literacy is introduced, using solfeggio with C Major as a reference point: DO, RE, MI, FA, SOL, LA, TI, DO. Students learn to sing in tune and start to identify patterns in music. As singers advance, they are taught specific vocal techniques and introduced to more challenging exercises (vocalises) to strengthen their singing.
  • taken once a week
  • approximately 30/45 minutes in length
  • grouped according to age and level
  • payable by semester based on a 30-week academic year commitment

All voice students are invited to perform for friends and family in an informal Voice Recital at the end of each semester.

*Small Group vs. Private Lessons

Sometimes parents wonder how Small Group Lessons can be as effective or even more so than the private lessons they are familiar with from their own childhoods.

While one-on-one instruction is appropriate in certain situations, learning with friends in a small group can result in surprisingly fast progress. Children tend to excel with peer learning, and music lessons are no exception. You'll see improved social and cognitive skills like listening, demonstrating, cooperation and good behavior.

Healthy competition is fostered when students hear their peers accomplishing something they thought was impossible. Children learn to stay on task whether the spotlight is on them or not. They learn self-reliance and master practice skills throughout the lesson.

Students are regularly challenged to surpass expectations and are encouraged to prepare for and participate in informal performances and fun, year-end recitals for family and friends. Parents appreciate and children flourish with our low-pressure approach.

The keys to successful and rewarding music-making include: regular attendance, sufficient home practice, preparation of assignments, personal responsibility and mutual respect. Follow these steps consistently, and you and your child will reap the benefits of professional music training.
