Engaging Classes In Music And Acting

Acting Classes with Youth Opera Staging Director Martha Collins. This fall Martha Collins will teach acting for the duration of the fall semester. In smaller groups, singers will have the opportunity to explore their acting skills through acting exercises, dialogues, and much more.

One-On-One Coachings. Looking for an alternative to expensive private music lessons? Sarasota Youth Opera music staff will be offering coachings free of charge to all members. Singers can work on singing, music reading, and chorus repertory.

Music 101. Another exciting addition to the Fall semester is "eartraining," which allows students to help develop music reading skills and feel more confident singing. These lessons will be built into chorus rehearsals.
