Suzuki Voice Program audition panel (3 members)
Training will be planned together with the Suzuki Voice Teacher Trainer/s. ESA Suzuki Voice Teacher Trainers will also work and train as a team. Training consists both individual and master class type training including lectures.
The Suzuki Voice Program is based on the understanding that the Voice is an instrument and each student will be taught according to their individual needs. It has been specially designed to learn vocal technique and style in a progressive manner. The Program was developed in Vantaa, Finland in 1986.
In the unlimited potential of children, I believe that there is a possibility that human beings will make up the true cultural time.
