OCMD is committed to nurturing, inspiring and empowering our students to achieve excellence in singing, which requires time, dedication, instruction and regular practice.
Singing is the act of producing musical sounds with the voice, and involves the use of sustained tonality, rhythm, and a variety of vocal techniques. Singers perform music that can be sung in multiple languages with or without accompaniment by musical instruments. Singing can be formal or informal, arranged or improvised. The benefits of singing include: strengthened immune system, boosted mood, lowered stress levels, improved communication skills, increased confidence, enhanced mental alertness, concentration and memory recollection. Individual instruction is offered in 30, 45 and 60 minute lessons according to the age and performance level of the student. Students meet with their instructors once a week.
