Music Legend Joins Georgia Academy of Dance & the Performing Arts

Georgia Academy of Dance & the Performing Arts is the premier performing arts school within our local community offering performing arts education with top professional instructors from around the nation. Joining their staff of performing arts professionals is Dr. Franklin Green, a Pi Kappa Lambda with a major in choral conducting, minor in vocal performance.

In addition to his doctorate of the University of Georgia, Dr. Green obtained his masters from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, majoring in music history and vocal concentration, and his bachelors from the University of Georgia, majoring in music education and vocal concentration and receiving magna cum laude honors. Throughout his career, Dr. Green has served as a church musician, public school choral director, and college professor around the southeast.

He also served on the voice faculty for Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville. For over ten years, his choirs have been nationally recognized, singing for state, regional, and national conventions for choral directors.

Before his teaching career, Dr. Green was a member of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chorus and the ASO Chamber Chorus under the direction of the well-known, Robert Shaw. Additionally, Dr. Green has been a guest soloist with many regional colleges, universities, and choral societies and is sought after as a judge and clinician.

He currently teaches privately and directs the Georgia Singers. Georgia Singers, Inc. is a Georgia Non-Profit Corporation, which sponsors two community choirs for young women from grade seven through young adults with fifty plus members. Dr. Green is also the Coordinator of the Lexus Scholarships for the Stars program which annually provides $25,000 in college scholarships for future music majors from Fayette County. Additionally, he is a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) and on the Board of Directors for the Georgia Division of the American Choral Director’s Association (ACDA).

Dr. Franklin Green will begin teaching private voice lessons at GAD & the Performing Arts in January 2009, adding yet another prestige artist and educator to their staff.

GAD & the Performing Arts private voice lessons provide students with a superior learning atmosphere enabling each individual to learn at their own pace. Additionally, their private lessons allow instructors to focus on individual weaknesses and strengths and cater to the student’s learning style. These lessons are excellent opportunities for in-school choral students to enhance their technique and progress at a much faster pace - without the intimidation of a large group setting. Introduction to voice consists of instruction in building foundations that last and developing essential skills for growing voices (ages 6, 7, & 8). Voice lessons, ages 9 & up, involves instruction in building a foundation, developing proper singing techniques, and ensuring the proper use of the voice (posture, breathing, warm-ups, tone, diction, rhythm, etc.)

Additionally, GAD & the Performing Arts provides the highest level of music education with exquisite facilities, private music rooms, and viewing windows. All students will have at least one performance per year. Additionally, intermediate to advanced students may participate in the Music Teachers National Association competitions if selected by the music instructor.
