♫  GROUP CLASSES WITH DARCI MONET  ♫

BRAND NEW ONLINE CLASS FOR SINGERS ON A BUDGET
NEXT COURSE BEGINS WEEK OF 1/15/19
ENROLL BY FRIDAY, 1/4
(*updated info coming soon*)



Darci Monet Vocal Style Studio is VERY excited to announce our brand new six week online vocal course for singers on a budget!  Super affordable, no commute, sing in your pajamas from home, join from anywhere in the country. Various class times to choose from including night classes. 

"I just took Darci Monet's online group vocal course, and I couldn't recommend it more! It's fun, supportive, and you will ABSOLUTELY hear the results. The group dynamic was great, because we all rooted for each other to succeed. Have a great time while learning invaluable skills to improve your voice!"

~Marie Pettit Gregson

"Darci has put together a vocal class that is inviting and thoroughly enjoyable for all levels. She inspires and captivates her students with her own vocal style and explains the nuances of musicality in easy to understand terminology. Big thanks, Darci."

~Rick Fraker

"Darci's online vocal course was brilliant. The class sizes are small so you get lots of individual attention for a very affordable price. Plus, it's in the comfort of your own home; you don't have to fight any sort of traffic to get there - what a great way to utilize video conferencing! Darci has a way of explaining things that just make sense and is easy to incorporate vocally. I noticed a drastic improvement during the six weeks in my voice and learned so much from watching other students, too. I've been a professional singer for many years and Darci has really helped me work past my vocal 'bad habits' and grow my vocal range to notes I never thought I would hit. Thank you!"

PREREQUISITES

1) YOU MUST HAVE DECENT PITCH AND KNOW WHEN YOU ARE SHARP/FLAT/"PITCHY" TO TAKE THIS COURSE. If you're not sure you meet this requirement, contact Darci directly ASAP at MinxMusic@aol.com or 818-209-6432 PRIOR TO THE SIGN UP DEADLINE. You may need a brief over-the-phone assessment (free) to be sure you can keep up.

2) YOU MUST BE WARMED UP BEFORE CLASS. Due to the nature of live streaming, it is not possible to lead the entire class in a warm up before individual work segments begin. If you do not have a proper vocal warm up (actual vocal exercises, not just singing your favorite songs) contact Darci ASAP. You may need to take a private session (at a super-discounted rate) to learn one before the course begins.

3) YOU MUST HAVE ACCESS TO A DEVICE WITH VIDEO AND SOUND THAT CONNECTS TO THE INTERNET, THEN DOWNLOAD THE ZOOM SOFTWARE FROM WWW.ZOOM.US PRIOR TO THE FIRST CLASS MEETING. Don't worry, it's very simple on your end and FREE but DO NOT wait till the last minute! We don't want to waste precious class time dealing with tech issues.

4) CLASS PERIODS AND TIMES REFERENCED BELOW ARE IN PACIFIC STANDARD TIME. PLEASE ADJUST FOR YOUR OWN TIME ZONE ACCORDINGLY:
Eastern - add three hours
Central - add two hours
Mountain - add one hour

WHAT HAPPENS IN CLASS

Classes are LIVE and INTERACTIVE. You will bring two (hopefully challenging) songs of your choice to the first class and at some point during be asked to sing them live (a verse and chorus or your best 16-32 bars either a cappella, to a karaoke track or accompanying yourself on an instrument). One of those songs will be chosen as your work piece for the remainder of the course based on Darci's assessment of your current skill level and difficulty level of the songs. Each week you will have a personal segment of class to sing the song in front of others in the class and engage in constructive, supportive conversation and critique. THESE CLASSES ARE A SAFE, SUPPORTIVE, ENCOURAGING AND SUPER FUN ENVIRONMENT! Darci pulls no punches and blows no smoke, but she is not in the business of crushing spirits, either. Any critique she offers is not a reflection upon your worth as a human being and all students are expected to offer feedback in a positive, uplifting manner. Also, there will be TONS of laughing (WITH, not AT each other)!
