Vocal instruction is available to children and adults of all experience levels—from beginners through the most advanced levels of study. Lessons are scheduled at our Downtown, Towson, Howard County, and Annapolis Peabody Preparatory locations on an individual basis and are contingent upon teacher availability.  Click here for detailed information about all of our lesson and class opportunities.

Private lessons: Adults and young singers ages 13 and older may audition for private voice lessons.    More information about placement auditions here.

Basics of Singing (group voice class) is offered for all age groups.  This small, friendly class is recommended for those without prior vocal experience, for young singers under 13, and for adults who wish to establish or refresh foundation vocal skills before continuing to private study. No placement audition is required.

Additional classes available include Audition Preparation & Techniques, Acting for SingersDiction for Singers,  and periodic open workshops – these are open to all interested students (you do not have to study privately with a Peabody voice teacher to enroll).  Please call the office or check the catalog for specific information about availability and locations.

Younger children and teens without any previous musical training are recommended to build musical and language skills in preparation for individual voice lessons by:

  • singing in an ensemble for children such as the Peabody Children’s Chorus;
  • taking small group classes such as Basics of Singing or Chorus Prep;
  • taking private lessons on an instrument such as piano, violin or flute;
  • participating in theory classes.
