Where singers become storytellers …
At the Songbook Academy, we believe that every young singer has a unique story to tell through music. The program is designed for high school students with a passion for singing who want to hone their vocal and performance skills with an emphasis on interpretation. Through access to top-tier mentors and a focus on the foundations of American popular music, we provide a safe space for young singers to explore musical styles, grow in their individual artistry, and take risks in a supportive pre-professional environment.
- Experience personalized mentorship from industry professionals
- Perform in state-of-the-art concert facilities
- Develop a strong foundation in American popular music
- Build lifelong connections in an inclusive musical environment
- Boost your confidence as a singer and storyteller
“I have grown so much not only as a singer … but as a storyteller. I learned how to share a story that represents me as an individual, while still honoring the music of that time.”
Edin Kebede (’21-’23), Cincinnati Conservatory of Music
