A Worldwide Certified and Formal Music Program!
Research shows that formal music education results in higher cognitive development, and improved academic results. The Celia Lobo Academy of Voice (CLAV) in its continuing efforts in improving, and reimagining music education as it is today, and the holistic development of students, now brings a comprehensive system of music study, goal setting, assessment, and performance from the Preparatory through the Advanced levels. We are proud to announce that we are now in collaboration with the Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM), Toronto, Canada, and the Music Teachers Association of California (MTAC), California, USA. In addition, we are also in collaboration with the Associated Board for the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM), Trinity College of Music, and the London College of Music, London, UK.
CLASSES BY STYLE
Find Out if Singing is for YOU!
CLAV develops students holistically and not just artistically. We do this by teaching values, and to treat fellow classmates with kindness and consideration. We also teach students to strengthen their voices to sing and speak. Our vocal technique enables students to sing any style of music. Our Classes by Style are an Introduction to the CLAV Family! These classes are in 3 levels: Beginner-Intermediate-Advanced with each level focusing on one additional aspect of vocal, musical and holistic development of students. Classes by Style meet once a week for 1 hour. They are FUN but structured focusing on vocal technique and a specific style: Disney, Disney Kidz Bop, Broadway, Bollywood, Bollywood Rap, R&B Hip Hop, Indi Pop, World Music, Pop, Blues, and Fusion. Students are charged a Showcase participation fee which is due at the beginning of the quarter with their quarterly tuition fees if it is a performance quarter. Fees are non-refundable and transferable. There are NO MAKE-UP classes. Students will receive a progress report card and certificate of completion at each level.
Prerequisite: Students must complete each level to be promoted to the next level by the instructor.
