Free Vocal Workshops for High School Students and Teachers
The University of Idaho Lionel Hampton School of Music is excited to provide a series of free workshops for high school students and teachers. We love music, everything from choral groups to marching bands, symphonies to opera, jazz and rock and roll. Brass. Percussion. We love it all and because right now is a challenging time, we want to share our experience and help you grow as musical artists. Learn from our world-class music professors and register for one or more virtual Zoom workshops. We promise they'll be fun and interactive and a great way to improve your skills and connect with other music lovers in Idaho and beyond.

Covid Choir: Digital Tools for Choral Directors and Their Singers
Covid has forced us to think long and hard about the act of ensemble music making. How do we continue teaching our singing musicians when we can’t necessarily meet in person? Due to the epidemic, new interactive digital app development has accelerated and has recently provided several exciting new ways in which we can teach our students and have students learn on their own. Though technology will never take the place of live choral rehearsals, these platforms will provide additional ways to supplement our teaching tool arsenal. Join David Klement, D.A., for one of two duplicate presentations on several wonderful new computer apps you can implement in your own choral rehearsal.
