Voice instruction at Third Street covers many styles – from classical to contemporary – touching on the tradition of Broadway, jazz, pop, and rock. Above all, the emphasis is placed on healthy singing and vocal technique. Instrumental students are encouraged to enroll in voice lessons to build skills in ear training, musicianship, and performance.

Instruction for voice is available in focused, one-on-one individual lessons; in shared partner lessons where two students of a similar level learn from the same teacher; and in larger group lessons for 3-5 students that are a great place for beginning students to start.
- Let's All Sing (K-Grade 2)
- Preludio (Grades 3-7)
- Chorale (Grades 8-12)
Performing in one of Third Street's choirs is a great way for voice students to create music with their peers. Through this process, students elevate their performance skills in an environment that fosters teamwork, fun and music making. Choirs are separated by age, with Chorale being the most advanced ensemble for students whose voices have changed. Choirs perform at an annual spring recital, the school-wide Holiday Concert in December, and at small concerts throughout the school year.
