Studio Groups

 

STUDIO GROUPS

Studio groups all have a definite purpose of study.  Each singer has the possibility of learning some vocal technique, musicality and artistry.  The groups all differ in regards to what is studied.  All groups learn a selection of songs of varied styles.  Some of the groups are causal and some require more commitment.
