Voice, Opera and Vocal Coaching at Eastman

Sample Lessons for Prospective Students

This year our auditions are being conducted virtually. Applicants have uploaded video recordings by December 15th for both pre-screening and final round evaluations. Applicants admitted to the final round are notified by the Admissions Office. Eastman voice faculty each offer one 30-minute sample lesson free of charge to students participating in the final round of this year’s auditions and to those singers who, once admitted to an Eastman degree program, request online sample lesson(s) up until May 1st. Lessons that extend beyond the 30-minute sample lesson are subject to a $25.00 per half hour fee, payable to the instructor. The voice faculty encourages scheduling no more than three lessons per day. Sample lessons for final round applicants are being offered beginning Monday, January 25th.

Please contact faculty members directly via email to inquire about scheduling a sample lesson. Prospective students may also contact faculty members about auditing lessons to observe their work with a current Eastman student. Voice, Opera and Vocal Coaching Faculty biographies and email links can be found at https://www.esm.rochester.edu/voice/faculty/

To better understand the richness of life at Eastman, candidates are encouraged to take a virtual school tour: https://www.esm.rochester.edu/admissions/experience/, attend recitals or opera performances and to visit classes or rehearsals. Auditing lessons can be as valuable as taking a private lesson. Prospective students are encouraged to do both. A list of class times are available from our representative in Admissions (Christina Crispin).
