We believe the optimal age to start private voice lessons is 12-14 year old, after voices have changed. However, we recognize that children love to sing! It’s important to learn proper technique and vocal health at a young age. They are never too young to learn proper technique and how to care for their voice. For instance, excessive screaming will at some point damage vocal chords.
For those willing to wait for private lessons, but want to sing and learn, we have established choirs to do just this.
Allegro Jr. Singers – students in grades 2-5
Created especially for our younger singers! They will be taught proper vocal technique, vocal health, singing in an ensemble and in parts, basic music theory appropriate for the age group, and performance opportunities.
The class meets on Wednesdays, 5-6pm.
Allegro Singers – middle & high school students.
This is Allegro’s performance choir! They will represent Allegro in the community at performance events. If they are in private voice, this is a great place to apply the concepts they are learning. They will continue learning music theory and explore different musical styles.
Students who study privately at Allegro will receive a 40% discount on group classes.
The choirs are directed by Ashleigh Cooper who brings her excitement of music and her enthusiasm to the choirs. She has the unique ability to pull the most out of the choir members.
