IN PERSON Singing...Technically Workshop

When all the parts of the voice are coordinated, it is a finely-tuned machine that can make just about any sound you want. Technology can help us learn how the voice works and how to improve and refine it.  For example, itty-bitty cameras can be used to examine the vocal cords to see how they’re working. Phone apps can help with: pitch, ear training, vowel tuning, onset, and much more. Let me show you how! 

Singing...Technically Workshop is taught by Larisa Montanaro and is for women 21+.
