MCCLOSKY CLASSES: Vocal Technique, Vocal Pedagogy, and More
We offer a variety of classes for different purposes, skill and interest levels. The Summer Seminar runs every summer in several locations; the Certification class runs on a two-year cycle; and the others are offered on an occasional basis.
For all levels, this four day intensive program is usually offered in several locations every summer. Lectures alternate with small-group work on individual vocal technique, and we include an opening night BBQ and a faculty recital.
Seminar participants often include amateur and professional singers, classroom teachers, people with vocal disorders, people who want to improve their speaking voices, and speech language pathologists.
Designed for professionals who wish to teach the McClosky Technique, this intensive program in technique and pedagogy runs in two eleven-day sessions over consecutive summers.
Prerequisites include a degree in music; a recommendation by a CMVT; and either attendance at a Summer Seminar or private study with a CMVT. The next 2-year cycle begins in 2018.
We can bring a half-day or full-day choral workshop to your area.
Educate your amateur singers about vocal technique, and learn how better vocal technique can enable a more beautiful, youthful and blended sound.
Seminar Level 2
This program is being redesigned, and is not currently offered.
A continuation of the Summer Seminar, this weekend program is for those who have already taken the seminar, or who have some familiarity with the McClosky Technique.
These full-day workshops are for amateur singers and others who would like an introduction to the McClosky Technique and to good vocal practices.
This low-cost program is offered from time to time in various locations, depending on faculty availability.
Master Teacher Training
This program runs infrequently, and is by invitation only to CMVTs interested in teaching our Certification classes.
