Enjoy singing some of your favorite songs with top accompanist and singer Sue Maskaleris, who has coached stars of Broadway and film, as well as beginners. Bring sheet music if you have it, especially if it's after 1990. Otherwise she will most likely know the song and find your key in a snap. Have a few song lyrics in mind, depending on time; reading them off your phone is fine. Then we'll explore expressing yourself through song and "bringing the lyric to life." Style, feels, tempos will be covered, to make the song your own. All styles: standards, musical theater, rock, pop, Latin, Brazilian, gospel, country and light classical.
