school of voice

Kate Maingot

In the Gifford Youth Orchestra Voice Department, we teach children and adults from age 8 – 80 to properly develop and use their voice. 

What We Do

In our program, students begin by learning how to care for their voice, how to read and interpret music, how to sing the instrument, and how to perform solo or with a group ensemble, or in the choir.

Sessions, Tuition, Summer Camp

Each year, the student is given a GYO Polo Shirt uniform, 48 weeklygroup lessons, free summer camp and other summer activities; healthy snacks and meals, and special field trips to such cultural events as: symphony orchestras, the ballet, the opera, Gospel concerts, and/or college campus with a performance on that stage. 

Classes are individually scheduled on Tuesdays from 3:30 – 7:30 p.m.

Tuition for All GYO Classes is $2,500 per year


Parents who agree to attend one parent meeting per month and participate in group fundraising events can apply for scholarships for tuition to help reduce fee to as little as $25 per 1/2hour for individual lessons.

Once enrolled, students can expect to receive: list all the things like free summer camp, string instrument, etc.


As the student becomes ready for performances, they are included in the Annual GYO Concerts, recitals, programs, and special events for other agencies, groups, or individuals.
