Check out what our graduates are saying about the Summer Voice Workshop:

 

“I was very interested in going to UBC for Opera, and Nancy Hermiston encouraged me to attend the Summer Institute as a stepping stone towards University. I learned a great deal about the program, the professors, and what it would take to get into the school. I also blossomed as a performer so much as a result of the careful and intense work done by the teachers.”

– Zoe

 

“UBC Summer vocal workshop completely changed my approach to my studies in voice performance and helped me discover my potential as an artist.”

-Tony

“I keep coming back year after year because I am able to notice a significant improvement in my technique and musicality. The UBC Summer Music Institute is directly responsible for me hoping to pursue studies in voice at the university level.”

– Magdalena

 
 

“UBC gave me a chance to meet other people who sang like me and were interested in the same career paths.  It also helped me go a little bit out of my comfort zone and try different exercises that helped me explore new territories with my voice.”

– Alysha

“I enjoyed the most that the teachers, counsellors and students are very nice. My special memories included the relaxation after three intensive long hours of private coaching and lesson. I really love and enjoy the yoga lessons. Overall, the experience was wonderful and unforgettable.”

– Nicole

 

“Between private lessons, masterclasses, coachings, theatre training and language classes, I got to hone so many skills. The instructors have decades worth of expertise, but they’re still approachable and kind. With every lesson I left feeling like I’d unlocked something new and exciting. They all listened closely and could pinpoint exactly what I needed to work on. I felt like I was cared for, and that I was singing better than ever thanks to their guidance. My counselors were talented UBC students, and my peers were just as excited about singing as I was. It was like being in a dream land away from work and daily life, immersed in music and sunshine!”

– Sarah

 

“What I enjoyed the most was being able to workshop opera scenes. It was an incredible opportunity because artists our age usually don’t get the chance to work with such a high caliber of coaches and directors. Everyone working with you wants you to succeed and there’s always someone there to help with interpretation, diction, or staging.”

– Daniel
