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.

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.
