Voice Lessons for Young Singers

Carini Voices offers a number of different voice lesson options for our students. All lessons include vocal exercises, rehearsal of repertoire, and setting up goals for the future.

One Hour Lesson. Our most common booking is for an hour of voice lessons. The hour guarantees that adequate time can be spent in both exercises and repertoire rehearsal. And it’s the best value. Book a One-Hour Lesson

45-Minute Lesson. Sometimes, an hour is tough to come by in a busy schedule. The forty-five-minute lesson allows for the work of exercises and rehearsal in a somewhat more compact timeframe. Book a 45-Minute Lesson

30-Minute Lesson. Our thirty-minute lesson is reserved for younger children who do not yet have the stamina for longer practices. Please contact us to receive permission to schedule a thirty-minute lesson before booking one. Contact the Studio
