Performance study

Voice

All students wishing to sign-up for voice lessons are required to sing a simple 5-minute audition either online or in person. You may pick any vocal or choral piece/excerpt of your choosing, or even sing Happy Birthday! You may also be asked to sing back a short vocal exercise which will be demonstrated for you. Please contact Professor Sherezade (Sherry) Panthaki with any questions.
