The basics of good breath support, posture and vocal production, and performance techniques... all while having fun singing the songs they love!

Do you sing in the shower? Do you sing in the car? Do you pretend to record the next chart topper when no one is looking? Did you get goose bumps when Jennifer Hudson, Kris Allen, Kelly Clarkson, Adam Lambert and At Last stepped on stage and into the collective heart of America? Then you should attend the Firehouse Glee Club! You and your friends can sing your hearts out, learn a little something along the way and yes... step out onto the stage with the spotlight on you.
