Valerie L Hall, founder and director of RSVI

Regina is home to (or the former home of) a number of highly-trained, professional music teachers. When I began RSVI in 2019, I saw the need for a local vehicle that could inspire and cultivate greater interest in solo singing.

Regina Summer Voice Intensive is a summer voice academy (modelled after Summer School for the Solo Voice in North Battleford), that aims to connect music professionals with students and patrons.

Regina Summer Voice Intensive

Regina Summer Voice Intensive offers classes in singing and stage instruction with a distinguished, professional faculty over five days in August. The week begins with an inspiring concert by faculty members and closes with performances by the students themselves.

Students participate in solo singing, musical theatre, solfège training, movement classes and stage deportment, as well as experiencing the joys of singing together chorally and in small ensembles.

My Teaching Pedigree

I teach voice and pipe organ through the Conservatory of Performing Arts, University of Regina. I am an Associate of the Royal Conservatory of Music with a diploma in Voice Performance, as well as holding degrees in Organ from the University of Manitoba (Bachelor of Music) and Concordia University, River Forest, Illinois (Master of Church Music). I am an accredited member of the Saskatchewan Registered Music Teachers Association (SRMTA) in two disciplines (voice and organ) and have adjudicated in these disciplines for the Provincial Music Festival Associations of both Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

RSVI 2019 was a great experience for my son, Kael. He received high-quality instruction from a wide range of specialists in a busy and challenging week. He made enormous strides as a vocalist. It was a thoroughly worthwhile experience.
