Singing calls make up 50% of your dance and make no mistake, this is an Advanced Singing Call
school. We will cover vocal presentation, choreography, and overall performance of a singing call.
Our goal is to help you to be as good as you can be for at least half of your dance. The icing on the
cake is a trip to the studio to record a vocal on your own singing call, knowing you are fully prepared
to step up to the microphone and sing. This in an intense singing call school and is not designed to
improve your patter calling beyond the aspect of music and presentation. (We have a large
percentage of return attendees so we must be doing something right.) Come on out and put some
pizazz in your performance. Plus, we guarantee you the very best music that is available in our
- Wade Driver
This school was beyond helpful. Everything from delivery of a complete dance to direct instruction
on ways to improve. You can't improve if all you get is "great job." Wade and Shauna provided
comments on delivery, tone, control, technique and equipment use. Almost anything you can imagine
regarding music, recording, delivery, as they shared their decades of experience. They also created
an environment that fostered the students to support and encourage each other.
I had the privilege of attending Wade's 2022 school as a teacher's aide, and so much about that
experience impressed me. It's not an overstatement to say that Wade is a legend in the square
dance music business, nor is it an overstatement to say that I watched him pull the best out of each
and every student. While the most tangible product of the school comes from the studio experience,
the intangibles are priceless. I was so impressed with how hard the students worked and how much
improvement was achieved. I am excited and honored to have been invited to partner with Wade on
this unique school focused on singing call presentation. We hope you'll join us and be prepared to
work hard and have some fun. You are guaranteed to learn new things about yourself and grow!

I have attended one of Wade's singing call schools. I found the school very helpful and enjoyed
meeting the other attendees. Wade presents a lot of good information and worked with all of us to
improve our singing and presentation. You also can not help but learn from the other attendees as
well. The comradery was great! Going through the process of learning and recording a singing call
was a great experience.
Thank you so much, Wade-san for awesome singing school with full of passion!! All of us were so
impressed with your deepest respect and love for all songs.
There was plenty of mic time with personal attention to every detail of timing, tone, and delivery. It
was a real thrill to hold the mic and work intensely with these masters of the art of singing calls.
