  • Barstow Online Voice Lessons

    Instructor - Emily Bennett

    While voice lessons typically involve a combination of singing, rhythm practice, and aural skills (intro to solfege), this format may be adjusted to meet the needs of your child as we navigate working online over the summer.  Some of our usual practices simply do not translate as effectively online as they do in person, depending on the resources you may or may not have available in the home.  To accommodate these changes, I would like to offer students a number of areas to learn if singing is not the main focus or may not be a good option for your child at this time.  Below is a list of topics that may be considered for online learning.  If you don’t see a specific topic of interest, please reach out to see if we can make it happen.  No matter your child’s area of interest, I hope we can find a good fit that will allow them to have fun, while continuing to learn over the summer.  Please note that all lessons will take place via Zoom unless otherwise requested—this has proven to be the most reliable source in my experience.  

     Maximum Enrollment - 12 Students

    *Topics in Music History: Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, 20th Century/Modern

    *Learn about Musical Theatre: Terminology, listening examples, famous composers, performers

    *Learn about Opera: Terminology, listening examples, famous composers, performers

    *Learn the basics of Diction (IPA—International Phonetic Alphabet) to improve English, Italian, German, or French pronunciation


     *And of course, any student wanting to focus on the singing will sing!
