Gospel for Teens in Concert

Gospel for Teens in concert.

We are auditioning teens 13 – 19 years old. Prepare one upbeat and one slow traditional gospel song, i.e. "His Eye is on the Sparrow" and "This Little Light of Mine,"

Saturday, September 24 from 1 – 3 p.m.
Friday, September 30 from 6 – 8 p.m.
Saturday, October 1 from 1 – 3 p.m.

Classes take place
October 8 to December 3, 2011

Classes are free for selected teens. The curriculum includes breathing, harmony, pitch, control, and music history. Participants are encouraged to discover their personal artistic talent and build self confidence on and off stage.

I'm on a mission to share the African-American musical art forms that are the foundation for much of today's music. It's a privilege to pass this music on to teens. Singing gospel music is motivational and inspiring in church or out.
