The CoOPERAtive program provides three weeks of intensive training for the young singer. The program is presented in cooperation and consultation with professionals in the field to help young singers build and strengthen their artistic toolbox. We will help build upon existing skill sets, offer new tools for artistic expressivity and help the young singer find their focus in how to learn.

Participants receive private voice lessons, music, language and drama coaching, as well as classes in body work, diction, and drama.
