Singers’ Workshops at TC is designed to assist young singers (ages 11-18) develop their vocal, musical, and communicative capabilities. Developed by Singing Voice Specialist, Jeanne Goffi-Fynn, these programs grew out of our partnership with Every Voice Choirs, a not-for-profit music program at Columbia University.

These workshops provide a unique opportunity for young singers. Aside from the fun of singing with peers, our participants perform in professional venues, participate in community service opportunities, and receive training from a nationally-recognized voice instructor with a team of professional vocal educators.

Singers' Workshops encourage healthy development of singing voices in various repertoire with positive and engaging performance opportunities. Dr. Goffi-Fynn directs two workshops each term: The Process of Performance in the fall and Music Theatre in the spring.  The Young Men's Group, focuses on music theatre and is offered in the fall and spring.

Auditions are not required, although a commitment to attendance and practice are expected.


The Process of Performance

Led by Dr. Jeanne Goffi-Fynn, the Process of Performance has been re-designed to assist all singers in preparation for a musical journey including vocal development and musicianship while developing confidence in an inclusive environment. Students will also work on preparation for auditions for solo and ensemble opportunities including the Specialized Schools in NYC. Students will sing a variety of repertoire, practice auditioning ("Mock Auditions"), and culminate the term in collaborative performance in December. The program is open to all interested in singing. Our success is shown in our alumni attending Laguardia, PPAS, and other prestigious schools in NYC and beyond.
