Saturday, May 20, 2017 | Special Event | Master Class in Functional Singing with Donna Reid, Voice Teacher & Mezzo Soprano, 4:00PM to 6:00PM, ACO Campus, Princeton NJ (rescheduled from an earlier date)

Do you ever wonder why some days you can sing easily and other days you can’t? Or why you always seem to be stuck singing in a lower voice when you really want to hit those high notes? Whether you are someone who just loves singing in the shower, a voice student or professional vocalist, you can find out the answers to these questions by attending voice teacher Donna Reid’s Master Class in Functional Singing on May 20, 2017 at the American College of Orgonomy campus in Princeton, NJ from 4:00PM to 6:00PM. $45 per person.

Ms. Reid will explain her approach in this master class about how the voice functions, with a focus on how emotional tension may affect it. The class will include live vocal demonstrations. Anyone interested in volunteering to work with Ms. Reid in front of the class as part of a demonstration should send an email to aco@orgonomy.org.

Ms. Reid maintains a private studio on the Upper West Side of Manhattan where she teaches musical theater performers and classical singers. She was on the faculty of The American Musical and Dramatic Academy for 19 years. She attended the School of Music at Northwestern University and sang professionally in Europe for nine years specializing in contemporary opera. She has performed in concerts and operas throughout Europe, appeared on Italian and German television, and has recorded various contemporary songs and operas. She was associate (and wife) to Cornelius L. Reid from 1994 until his death in 2008. Cornelius Reid was a noted singing teacher, author of five books on vocal pedagogy and the father of Functional Vocal Training. She assisted Mr. Reid in the numerous master classes he presented in the United States, Canada and Europe and acted as translator during those classes given in various cities in Germany and Austria. Ms. Reid teaches master classes in Germany in connection with MusikWerkstatt Darmstadt, a music school in Darmstadt (http://www.musik-unterricht.info) and she also teaches in Paris, France in association with Broadway in Paris (https://www.broadwayinparis.com).

The cost to attend the class is $45. Seating is limited, registration required. Register and pay using the button below, or call (732) 821-1144 or email aco@orgonomy.org
