“This class is for all the artists out there trying to find their voice. I’m proud to share through MasterClass my love of music and all of the vocal techniques I’ve learned throughout the years,” said MasterClass Instructor Christina Aguilera.
“We’re extremely excited for our first ever singing class. It’s one thing to just listen to Christina, it’s another to actually learn from her. Christina is simply incredible and is an amazing teacher,” said CEO and Co-Founder David Rogier of MasterClass.
“From the moment we started filming with Christina, we knew we were creating something special. Her abundance of knowledge combined with the unique technology featured in her class, such as the vocal range finder, is an incredible package that we can’t wait to share with the singers around the world,” said Co-Founder, Creative Director, and CTO Aaron Rasmussen of MasterClass
