Singers’ Workshops at TC is designed to assist young singers (ages 11-17) 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 three workshops: Audition Prep in the fall, Music Theatre in the spring, and Young Men’s throughout the year. Auditions are not required, although, a commitment to attendance and practice are expected.


Audition Prep Vocal Workshop

Led by Dr. Jeanne Goffi-Fynn, the Audition Prep Workshop is designed to assist singers in preparing auditions for specialized performing arts high schools. Students work on preparing and performing their audition solo and preparing the musicianship portion of the audition. Our alumni are now attending Laguardia, PPAS, and other prestigious schools in NYC.

The program is open to all young men, including transgender, non-binary, and non-gender conforming individuals.
