The Center for the Performing Arts is partnering with Todd Neal for a vocal instruction/coaching course. During the course, students will learn song selection and approach, vocal technique, interpretation, while building stage presence, confidence, and enjoyment of performing. Students completing the course will have a better understanding of Broadway repertoire, cabaret performance, interpretation, projection, and stage presence.
