Summer Virtual Voice Lessons
This summer, the Baltimore Children’s Choir will offer summer voice lessons. This is a great opportunity to improve vocal technique, enhance music reading, and learn best performance practice. The voice lesson series is open to kids and adults and can be catered to each student. Please reach out to
with any questions.
Each lesson will have a warm-up (vocal, breath, and physical), music literacy component, and repertoire component. Lessons will be tailored to fit the need of each student and will be age appropriate.
The summer voice lesson series will occur from June 25th through August 7th. Lessons can be scheduled at a mutually agreed upon time between teacher and student.
Who is the voice teacher?
Joseph Shortall (Artistic Director, Baltimore Children’s Choir) will run all voice lessons. Mr. Shortall is a avid performer and teacher in the Baltimore metro area. He has performed in multiple musical theater performances (Damn Yankees (Joey Hardy), OKLAHOMA! (Curly), Pippin (Pippin), The Fantasticks (Matt)) and as the tenor soloist in Messiah, Mozart Requiem, and The Creation. Mr. Shortall received his Bachelor of Music Education and Master of Music in Choral Conducting from the University of Maryland. In addition to his work with the Baltimore Children’s Choir, he also works at the St. Paul’s School and Maryland State Boychoir.
Lessons will occur on Zoom. Students will have access to piano or back tracks for their lessons.
