In Class Voice Lessons – We have a number of highly qualified private voice teachers that teach private lessons during our classes at South.  These are not required but are highly encouraged of all singers in our program.  Space is limited and students are assigned with a teacher on a first come first serve basis.  Students will not be assigned unless a form has been turned in.  These forms can be turned in to Mr. McLean via email or in class. Link to the Voice Lesson Packet: 2017-2018 Voice Lesson Packet.

Teacher Contact Information – We are fortunate enough to have two Choir Directors at South Salem who work with our wonderful students.  With these unique set up, each class will have a lead teacher and an assisting teacher.  The names that you will see on your schedules are Ms. Jenna Hernandez (hernandez_jenna@salkeiz.k12.or.us) and Mr. Will McLean (mclean_william@salkeiz.k12.or.us).  Please contact by email or you can reach us by phone at (503) 399-3252.

We are excited to be returning so many great singers and welcoming many new choir members this year at South! As we have the last three school years, we are offering voice lessons during class.

We have added some outstanding new private voice teachers and singing opportunities for singers at South.  With the large number of students, it is recommenced that these forms be turned in ASAP to reserve a place in a voice studio.  Students are scheduled on a first come, first serve basis.  To ensure your place in lessons, please review, complete, and send the Voice Lessons Packet (see below) to mclean_william@salkeiz.k12.or.us as soon as possible.  Even if you have confirmed with your instructor that you will be continuing lessons with them, you will not be scheduled until you have submitted the packet.  Forms can be dropped off at the school office or scanned and emailed.
