Summer School? Absolutely! If it’s a Summer Singing School!

School may be out for summer, and while attending school in the summer might seem like a hardship, for those of us who enjoy singing, attending a summer singing school or camp can be a great experience to learn new songs and improve technique in a relaxed atmosphere!  Although some schools require auditions and an early sign-up, there are summer singing programs that are designed for amateur singers who want to improve their skills – many of these still have spots open for this summer.

Summer is a great time to Sing!

Learning to Sing at Summer School!

Admit it!  Some of your best memories (or at least your favorite stories to tell) are from your days at summer camp!  No matter how old or what your singing ability is, there is a summer singing school or camp for you!  To find a summer singing school or camp check your local listings at Universities and Colleges – if you don’t find something under singing – try music programs and look under vocal training.  But why stay around home during your summer vacation?  Why not attend a summer singing school in a foreign land?  It might be one of the best vacations you’ve ever had! 

Summer Singing Schools
