WHAT IS SQUAD?
WHO WE ARE
Squad Harmonix is the very first year-round a cappella training academy in the world.
We are a vocal team, a group and community of talented kids all working and supporting each other to be the best they can be.
Think pro soccer, but for voice.
For advanced young vocalists aged 8-17.
WHAT WE DO
Students meet every week currently online via Zoom for class time to learn :
voice warm ups
audition for solos live online
Additionally, students will learn industry techniques to film and record their parts, using our recommended recording equipment resulting in professionally produced music videos and albums produced by our in-house production team.
equipment set- up
make up tutorials
Eventually we hope to return to training in person and perform weekly live shows. Fortunately, our online program has become so popular with our members that we will be continuing Saturday classes in 2021 with the option to train in-person (for those living in Los Angeles and who have reached Senior and Performance Level).
At Squad Harmonix, we pride ourselves on maintaining a respectful, engaging, healthy risk-taking environment that allows students to enjoy the collaborative aspects of making music while finding their own voices and opportunities to shine.
Students are held accountable for progress and expected to deliver to the best of their abilities. Our staff provides many resources to tailor education to each and every individual student to assist in achieving their goals.
First and foremost, we are a community, team, a family of like-minded individuals working towards the same goal. In a time when we are so disconnected, we find it so important to keep a close community where students are encouraged to be themselves and support each other.
Levels are based on proficiency in sight reading, harmonization, and vocal training, and are NOT determined by the student's age. Those wishing to join with a strong solo voice but little sight reading ability must join at Junior level and work their way up to ensure they get a well rounded education in music. For those wishing to fast-track the first level we offer Music Theory and Sight Reading private and group classes in the week that students can sign up for at registration.
