At its core, the Creative Vocal Lab strives to empower students with the knowledge and skills to make the music they want.
One of the signature features of the Creative Vocal Lab is the use of "labs" to reinforce musical skills and concepts in a large group setting.
During each CVL course, mini explorative workshops are held on a specific musical aspect before students are broken up into lab groups
of 4-5 to experiment with the challenge presented.
The Creative Vocal Lab was founded in 2010 by Evan Feist as a part of his second masters degree at Columbia University, Teachers College.
The aim was to create a "student-driven non-repertoire based" ensemble music class that could be successfully replicated in public schools.
