DIME is kicking off 2017 with a new set of short courses for you to improve and hone your musical skills!
RAISE YOUR VOICE | Meets Tuesdays for 6 weeks from 7-9pm beginning February 21st.
Raise Your Voice returns, this time with DIME instructor, Chris McCall, bringing her wealth of experience to this popular class. Learn about vocal techniques, performance skills, singing styles, and how to raise your voice properly without damaging your vocal chords! This class is available for students age 16 and up, and while we welcome all skill levels, please remember that this class leads up to a performance at the end of the week, so is best suited for intermediate level vocalists.
SELL YOUR SONG (SOLD OUT) | Meets Tuesdays for 6 weeks from 7-9pm beginning February 21st.
This brand new short course combines songwriting and music business in a new and interesting way. Work with your classmates and instructor, Drew Schultz, on one of your new songs, and then learn from him and Nicole Churchill (Assemble Sound) about how to turn your inspiration into actual compensation.
MIX SESSIONS 101 (SOLD OUT) | Meets Tuesdays for 6 weeks from 7-10pm beginning February 21st.
