Class Description

Mr. Chaffin will teach how to be aware of, to improve, to develop, and to practice the essential singing elements of posture, breath management, resonance, and vowel production in order to free the vocal instrument to eliminate strain and hoarseness, to increase singing range and agility, to develop fuller tone color, to sing longer phrases, and to expand artistic capabilities. We will address vocal anatomy, daily vocal health, the slow and patient development of our voices, and choosing repertoire.
This class is an excellent opportunity to grow and learn so that both the novice and advanced students will glean a wealth of knowledge.

Michael Chaffin

I love collaborating with people. I deeply enjoy learning and discovering, and I delight in sharing what I learn with others. Working with students fills my heart to overflowing, and I love and treasure each and every one of my students in class settings and in one-on-one instruction. I have been a professional educator for 18 years as a teaching artist, choral director, voice teacher, music theory teacher, and musical theater workshop creator, director, and facilitator. I have been performing professionally, since the age of 15, and I perform and teach professionally across the musical genres: classical/opera, musical theater, jazz, rock, gospel, R&B, contemporary, pop, country, etc.
