I would like to know if there are any workshops or classes where one can learn how to sing early music. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

In the Chicago area, Ars Musica and Bella Voce have given workshops devoted to chant and/or early music in the past. Visit their websites (via the Ensembles links at EMC) for the latest info.
The Chicago group Schola Antiqua performs chant exclusively. Try contacting that group (via the EMC Choral Ensembles page). They can give you an informed answer to your question.
Elsewhere, there will be a Gregorian Chant workshop in St. Meinrad, Indiana in October. See the EMC October 2005 Events page (under Workshops/Retreats).
Usually every summer there are workshops around the country, some of them focusing on singing, others with vocal tracks within a larger early music workshop/festival. Browse past EMC Calendar and Events pages (especially the summer ones).
Look to the EMC Instructors page (within the People category) for instructors who can teach you early vocal technique.
Consider also doing a SiteSearch (in the upper right corner of most EMC pages, just below our "mascot"), using relevant terms like "chant", "sing", and so on. Really, there are many people mentioned at this website who can provide you with answers. Do some digging.

There are some early music workshpos at the UNiversity of Chicago this fall, but I am not clear if one needs to be a student to participate. Contact Shawn Keener for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
