We have many students who take private voice lessons and musical theater classes. Students sing many types of music from their favorite artists to classical arias. Our voice teachers have university training in Vocal Performance and sing everything from pop and jazz to opera. Our teachers all have performance backgrounds and many have been a part of Broadway musical theater shows.
Just a sample of what a student will learn in voice lessons will include how to breathe properly, how to increase their range, proper pitch, how to project, and stage presence. Omaha School of Music and Dance offers a minimum of 1 optional performance opportunity every year with our Spring recital. Many of our students also perform at local festivals, sporting events, and honor choirs. Our private, one-on-one voice lesson lengths can vary in length depending on each student’s musical goals. We offer class sessions that are 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 1 hour.
All of our private music lessons will meet once a week for the selected amount of time. Students begin by warming up their voices and then move on to the set curriculum for the day that the teacher has selected for the student to work on. These usually include skill-building exercises. Our instructors use full pieces of music as a way to demonstrate how to apply these skills.
