Foundations of Singing
Deposit Due at Time of Registration:
You do not need to be an experienced musician to take this course; we will start at the very beginning.
Everyone sings! Whether you sing in the shower, in the car, or onstage, this course is a fun and interactive way to learn the basics of singing. In this course, we will set a foundation for several different aspects of singing. This includes vocal techniques, music theory, sight-singing, and vocal pedagogy. We will also cover key information for every singer such as how to warm up properly, how to take care of your voice, how to combat stage fright, and more.
For weekly homework, students will practice singing, utilize sight-singing exercises, and do the required reading. For different weeks, there will be variations between written assignments and theory assignments. There will be occasional quizzes, but a student’s understanding will be shown mostly through assignments and projects.

Paulina Guerra is a homeschool graduate from Houston, Texas, and she developed a love for music at a young age. Participating in musicals throughout high school, she decided to pursue a career in vocal performance. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Music with a concentration in vocal performance and a minor in theatre at Louisiana Tech University. Paulina received her Master of Music at the University of Mobile with cognates in both vocal pedagogy and theater.
While she has really enjoyed every performance opportunity from ensemble to lead roles, two that she especially loved were Rita in Lucky Stiff (opera workshop), Woman #2 in Six Women with Braindeath, Ms. Todd in The Old Maid and the Thief, and the Monitoress in Suor Angelica. Paulina has also competed at the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival Region VI (2019) portraying Victoria in The Groundling.
