--Learn to perform in an "Ensemble"... (Bel Canto, Animato, Cantare) --Start your younger children off on the right track...(Prima Volta) --All students contribute no matter their needs or abilities. (Vivo) --Study instruments or voice in private lessons... --Auditioning for community theatre, American Idol, or a church solo? A coaching can JUMPSTART the musician inside of you. --Wish your choir could be a little better, but not sure what to do... Our faculty can help.
Choirs as Classes: Group instruction is central to our community building mission. Members of all ages become a part of an instant support community just like sports teams and neighborhood friendships. These groups are much more than just choirs. Our chorus' communities use your unique talents to improve the whole. Groups rehearse and meet regularly each semester and then present 2-3 regional performances or showcases as appropriate. Regular group instruction and rehearsals typically meet on Tuesday evenings.
Private instruction is currently available in 30-60 minutes sessions for voice, piano, organ and most major instruments. Scheduling is flexible and based on the needs and availability of students and faculty. Group instructional coaching and master class environments are provided regularly via our studio classes and special events. Students are provided a minimum of two studio class opportunities per semester and at least one public performance with the larger Da Capo events per year. Our entire faculty works together to support the group learning environments provided by concerts and studio classes no matter the specific discipline. We work as our own teaching community much like the faculty of larger colleges and universities and focus our education around creating interdisciplinary learning environments where students of all levels support and learn from each other.
Our master level faculty also provide short term Coaching to enable more targeted preparation. These coaching sessions are short term, intense, objective based learning modules targeted at meeting the immediate demands of our customers and students. We understand that you have goals ranging from auditioning for show choir, singing for an office party, to singing in church, to auditioning for Kings Dominion or Busch Gardens or American Idol, to singing at Carnegie Hall.
Events & Concerts: We present concerts and and music events at all levels of ability from beginning recitals to master level concerts and masterclasses. Some of our events are presented our our primary locations, but many are presented in local schools, churches, nursing homes, hospitals, and even private homes.
Our session finale events are always exciting as our entire Da Capo Community comes together to make music and share in multiple venues. We sponsor guest artists and ensembles and find ways to introduce them directly to the community and our students through seminars and masterclass/studio settings.
