MUAP 1281 Applied – Voice (Private Voice Lessons) The process for signing up for a voice teacher is to contact the teacher that you want to study with, find out if they have room for you in their schedule and then they will tell you what to do to get officially registered.
Our teachers are happy to schedule a lesson, just to see if you are well matched. Some teachers will be a better match for you than others, or the scheduling might be better. Do contact them for a “demo” lesson and see what you think.
