Sing Omaha is proud to serve as Nebraska’s
premier choral music education and performance organization.
Sing Omaha is a nonprofit organization committed to growing people of all ages through premier music education and performance.
We accomplish this mission through private lessons in voice, piano, guitar, bass, and drums, as well as masterclasses, workshops, and summer camps via Sing Omaha Studios, and through ensemble singing instruction and performance in one of eight curriculum-driven, age-specific Sing Omaha Choirs.
Sing Omaha envisions a future where music education and performance are valued as cultural guideposts and necessary components of a well-rounded life experience for people of all ages, genders, ethnicities, creeds, and economic circumstances.
In January, 2007, after consulting with a number of choral experts in Nebraska, and around the country, Sing Omaha founder, Matt Hill created an organization that he hoped would positively impact the arts community in the Omaha area by providing high-quality education and artistry to singers of all ages and backgrounds.
In its first two artistic seasons, Sing Omaha fielded four ensembles, ranging in age from Kindergarten through adulthood. The high school mixed choir was folded after the first season, and Sing Omaha entered the 2008-09 season with three choirs: a K–7th grade children’s choir, an 8–12th grade girls choir, and an adult concert choir.
The 2009–10 season saw Sing Omaha more than doubling in size from three choirs to seven. The four new ensembles enhanced Sing Omaha’s ability to provide the highest-quality choral/vocal experiences to singers by offering, for the first time, uniquely-suited choirs for students K–2nd and 3rd–6th in Papillion and Millard. In December 2009, Sing Omaha presented its first-annual production of “A Christmas Fanfare”, which has become an Omaha tradition not to be missed.
In 2012, Sing Omaha added an adult women’s choir to the ensemble roster, enabling more singers to participate, without the balance concerns of a mixed men’s/women’s ensemble.
We opened Sing Omaha Studios in 2015 to offer summer camps, piano lessons, and voice lessons, and added a second studio location in 2016.
The Boys Choir joined the ranks in 2017, and in 2018 we expanded the 84th St. studio to add a large rehearsal space (2000 SF). In mid 2021 (post-Covid), we opened “Sing Omaha Rocks” to meet the needs of students interested in contemporary music styles by offering private lessons in guitar, bass, and drums.
In February, 2015, Matt Hill approached Sing Omaha’s Board of Directors about expanding the mission of Sing Omaha Inc. to meet the need of singers looking for one-on-one instruction through private voice lessons . Sing Omaha Studios launched in the summer of 2015 with three Show Choir Camps for 3-5th graders and 6-10th graders in advance of the August “Grand Opening” of the studio at 8438 Park Dr. in Omaha.
2018 saw a 2000+ square foot expansion of the 84th St. Studio to include a second (larger) rehearsal space on-site!
In February, 2016, Dr. Hill again expanded Sing Omaha’s reach with the creation of a second studio location and an expansion to add piano and guitar lessons. Dr. Hill led the organization through negotiations to open the second studio location in southwest Omaha. This new location provides Sing Omaha an opportunity to meet the educational needs of an underserved area of our community.
Sing Omaha Studios expanded in 2021 to add Sing Omaha Rocks. This expansion includes a new 1000 SF studio and new faculty to teach Bass guitar and Drums to rock/pop-focused musicians.

Sing Omaha expanded again in the fall of 2017 with the addition of the Sing Omaha Boys Choir. This ensembles serves changed and unchanged male voices in grades 7-12.
In an effort to serve more students, Sing Omaha launched a Children’s and Youth Choir site in Gretna in September, 2023.
We are excited to offer an engaging interactive parent/infant-toddler class. These ten-week sessions are full of singing, drumming, and dancing (informal), and include access to recordings to play at home or in the car between classes.

We are grateful to have been afforded opportunities to expose our singers and audiences to partner ensembles from the Omaha area and around the world. Since our founding in 2007, Sing Omaha youth and adult choirs have performed for major events in the Omaha area, and have collaborated with such ensembles and artists as:
As Sing Omaha is a 501c3 federally-recognized non-profit organization, we depend on volunteer and financial support from our friends in the community.
