    Until further notice please continue to practice on your own with various sites, apps and on-line videos. Exercising your voice is extremely important as it is a muscle. If you are looking for suggestions, please reach out to me until the UTMS Choir is up and practicing. Please reach out to me with any questions. Keep practicing!
