Voice Lessons this summer

Hello! I’m Andrea and I’ll be working in the voice department this summer. This will be my 4th time at camp and I’m looking forward to another great summer. I’m from Boston, MA where I recently received a MM in vocal pedagogy from New England Conservatory. This year I also appeared with the Cantata Singers (Boston) and the Granite State Opera (Portsmith, NH). My plan for the summer is to meet as many campers as possible in the voice studio this summer. Come and try it out… we can help you with all sorts of singing issues like, learning a new song, feeling more confident in your singing, singing more in tune, or just trying out your material in front of someone. So, sign up for voice class! We look forward to meeting you.

Rock n Roll this summer

Mike & Jo Whitney are thrilled to be a part of the French Wood’s Rock Shop this summer. As singer/songwriters and co-authors of “I Know It’s Only Rock N’ Roll but I Write It”, they enjoy teaching youth songwriting and live performance workshops. These workshops are high energy and geared for ages 7-17. Some of the activities that will be offered this summer will be:

  • Songwriting – using fun and easy activities as tools that are perfect for all levels of writing.
  • Stagecraft- learning the art of stage presence that will help you to perform with confidence.
  • Singing rock- voice protection, ear training, warm ups, phrasing of lyrics.
  • Guitar- exercises & dexterity training, chord shapes, lead & rhythm techniques for all styles of music.
  • Live Performance- overcoming stage fright, how to join a band, bantering with your audience.
    And much more…
