Independent vocal instruction is a valuable tool for young singers to discover their full potential. While private lessons are not a required part of the vocal music curriculum in Paw Paw, they are highly encouraged and available to all our students.
One-on-one instruction allows for careful investigation of the student’s voice, opportunity for vocal growth, and appropriate literature selection. A consistent lesson schedule develops a beneficial regimen of practice, discipline and vocal aptitude. Students will have the opportunity to perform in master classes, recitals, and state solo/ensemble festivals during the school year. Students can work to prepare for honor choirs, college scholarship auditions, and other competitive events. Regular practice will maximize a student’s vocal development.
Students study solo voice after school in the practice rooms at Paw Paw High School or at the private teacher's home studio.
Students often take one lesson per week for 30 minutes. Study in a private studio is a commitment on the part of the teacher, student, and parents. Therefore, it is expected that this arrangement between the above parties will be maintained for a minimum of one semester. Studying for longer periods or bi-weekly rotation may be available.
Costs for each lesson are determined by the studio teacher. It is expected that lessons are pre-paid at the beginning of each month. Payments must be made directly to the private teacher. Available funds from an individual student choir account may be used to pay voice teachers by completing a Choir Account Withdrawal Form (found online or in the choir room) by the student. It is the student’s responsibility to complete this form in a timely manner. Students may be responsible for payment of accompanist fees when needed.
