Voice Master Class with
Dr. Kathleen O'Rourke
Saturday May 1st at 10am PST on Zoom
WePlay Music is proud to present our Master Class Series, conducted by our Master Level teachers on the first Saturday of each month. Master Classes are an excellent way for students to explore new concepts provided by a highly qualified educator. It can also serve as reinforcement of ideas of a student's own choices or from their current teacher. In essence, master classes are reserved for students that have prepared their music to the full extent of their abilities and are looking for new methods of enhancing their performance to the next level.
