MAWA Vocal Workshop

MAWA is happy to present an opportunity for vocalists to learn more about their instruments and pick up some new techniques for developing their sound. Whether you are self-taught, trained or just starting to sing, this workshop will give you tools to grow with. While musical training is beneficial,

it is NOT necessary for this workshop.

Pre-registration is requested for participation in this seminar by April 18th, 2018.
