Exploratory Classes

Opera Upper West encourages artists through an authentic process of musical story-telling that is connected to the human experience. All of our teachers have received masters degrees in musical performance, and each teacher provides a system for success that inspires daily action and musical growth. Our community of artists are also encouraged to engage and learn from each other through masterclasses and social hours hosted by Opera Upper West. Learn more about our programs below:
