FAQS

What if I don't have a laptop or strong wifi?

Strong Wifi is required in order for you to get the full benefits of what you are paying for.  If you don't have a desktop, laptop, or a smartphone with a functioning camera and microphone/audio will do. 

What scenes/music will the students be performing?

After viewing submission videos and hearing our applicants, we will choose repertoire that is appropriate for the students and their current vocal abilities. We will put together a program of music that fits our students’ needs and will help them grow rather than pre-assign music that could be too difficult or even not challenging enough. The repertoire will be a mix of Musical Theater and Opera.

What are the dates?

The program will be held from July 18th - July 24th of 2021. Check-in day will be online on the 18th and the program will end on July 24th.
