With the success of last year's voice division, we are renewing it for 2016. We want to sustain our students training for SHTAP's curriculum. Under the direction of Al Kary, we will be adding voice faculty to keep up with the demand of our students. We are still working on Choral Groups and Cabarets. We will have a voice recital presentation this year.
Al Kary will be teaching lessons. Many of you know Al Kary from the many years of wonderful musical direction for many of our musicals. He is excited to become a vocal teacher for us.
This year we are offering each student that sign-ups for the musicals to get a minimum of three lessons each.
Sign-up between 11:00-3:00 p.m.
Monday-Friday, June 5-30, 2017
