The Program

The Classical Voice program is for high school singers ages 14-18 who plan to pursue vocal studies in college. Each student receives two private lessons per week, in addition to individual and group coachings. Students have extensive performing opportunities, including recitals, masterclasses, and a program of solo arias and staged opera scenes. Students are also invited to audit rehearsals of Brevard's Janiec Opera Company.

The daily schedule of classes includes:

  • music theory and literature
  • acting
  • movement
  • vocal technique and diction
  • masterclasses in performance and audition techniques

This program is led by Director Janine Hawley.

Audition Requirements

Admission to the Brevard Music Center is determined by audition. Voice applicants must submit a video recording by including YouTube video link(s) in their application.

Perform from memory two songs from the classical repertoire (not musical theater). One must be sung in English.

Tuition and Payment Schedule

The tuition for the 3-week High School Voice program is $4150. This includes all instruction, housing, meals, and the opportunity to attend on-campus concerts and other events. Each participant is responsible for travel to and from Brevard.

A non-refundable enrollment fee of $500 is due within 2 weeks of acceptance and applies toward the cost of tuition. The remaining tuition balance is due by May 15.


All payments, except the $40 application fee and $500 enrollment fee, will be fully refunded if the Center receives notice of cancellation due to serious illness before May 1. Written verification from an M.D. is required before a refund can be made. No reduction in fees can be made for late arrival or early departure. No refunds will be made after May 1.
