Skills for Singing is a co-curricular, non-credit, no-fee course offering weekly voice training in a group setting, with a particular focus on understanding how the voice functions and regularly applying that knowledge through class repertoire. Each class will also devote time to reading and sight-singing Western musical notation. All experience levels are welcome, as each student will grow from where they are and discover more about their unique voice, personal musicianship, and artistic style. Participation in the course is encouraged for those new to singing, those looking to audition for the Harvard Choruses, operas, musicals, or a cappella groups,  or any new members of the Harvard ensembles looking to further their vocal abilities.

Space is limited to 20 singers, and usually there is a long waitlist. Priority is given to Harvard College undergraduates but Harvard graduate students and Harvard faculty/staff/affiliates are welcome for consideration and greatly contribute to the class experience. All singers will follow current Harvard University protocols concerning COVID-19.  

Registration for the Fall 2022 Section of Skills for Singing is now closed. If you are interested in future sections of the course, please fill out the following form.

NOTE:  You must be a Harvard student, faculty, staff, or affiliate to enroll in the course.
