Free Singing Lessons for Men Offered by the Westchester Chordsmen Chorus

Starting Monday, February 4th and continuing for 6 Mondays, The Westchester Chordsmen Chorus will offer six free singing lessons to men in and around the County as a community service. The free six-week program provides coaching and instruction to teach new singers how to sing and experienced singers how to sing better. The simple curriculum will take you from basic fundamentals to advanced concepts, regardless of your current singing ability. Five previous series were attended by over 70 men.

Why do this?  We ALL sing in our own way. In church or synagogue, in the car, in the shower. But many of us are unsure of our ability or of singing in front of others. The Chordsmen want to help you get the most beautiful sound possible from your voice, with the confidence to perform. We love to sing – that’s why we do it and have for 65 years!!

Who: Men, young and old, who have always wanted to sing, or want to improve their skills.

Experience Needed? Can’t read music? No problem, no prior musical experience is needed. 

Cost: There is NO COST; the program is FREE, a community service program from the Westchester Chordsmen Chorus. Materials will be provided.

Who is teaching: Keith Harris, with over 20 years of vocal teaching experience, leads our talented and equally-experienced music team who will inspire you with great energy and humor!

When: Monday evenings starting on February 4th and continuing for 6 weeks. Starts at 6:45 p.m. for 1 ½ hours. Come one night or complete the full six-week course, it’s up to you. Also, if you miss the first session, come to the next one you can.

Where: Kol Ami Synagogue 252 Soundview Road, White Plains, NY 10606: please enter through back entrance. A Chordmen member will be there to direct you to the rehearsal area.
