Back by popular demand, voice teacher and mezzo-soprano, Ms. Donna Reid, will teach a Master Class in Functional Singing on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at the ACO campus in Princeton, NJ from 4:00PM to 6:00PM. For voice students, professional vocalists and anyone who loves to sing!
If you ever wonder why some days you can sing easily and other days you can’t, or why you always seem to be stuck singing in a lower voice when you really want to hit those high notes, then this is the class for you. For those who have attended the class before, Ms. Reid says, “There’s always something new to learn!”
Ms. Reid will explain her approach about how the voice functions, with a focus on how emotional tension may affect it. The class will include live vocal demonstrations. Anyone interested in volunteering to work with Ms. Reid in front of the class as part of a demonstration should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
