Comments from recent Towson Encore Singer Survey:
- Stephen Harouff's instruction during rehearsals is superb. From warm-up to the final minutes, everything is geared to producing better choristers with knowledge of music. Ear training, vocalizing, training the instrument, and learning better and more sophisticated music are ongoing goals in each rehearsal.
- Stephen Harouff...amazing charismatic, excellent teacher. Have learned so much in my first semester here. I thought my singing days were over at 67. Stephen taught us so many different techniques that I am thrilled to have my singing voice back.
