Course Overview

Sing your heart out! Group singing lessons.

“If I cannot fly, let me sing” – Stephen Sondheim

Learn the basics of singing within a group setting. There will also be opportunities to work on solo material and get individual voice specific tips. Wide range of genres, folk, gospel, pop, soul, blues and even world music!

Over the course of the 12 weeks, we will work on:

  • vocal exercises
  • pitch and finding your voice
  • listening, harmonising and singing with others
  • soloing and improvising
  • stylistic choices
  • building repertoire
  • performance techniques

In the final few sessions we will focus on microphone techniques and singing with a band, all culminating in a final performance.  We will go at the singers’ pace.  Students are encouraged to suggest songs they would like to work on.

No prior music knowledge or experience necessary.  Songs will be taught by ear.  No need to be able to read music.  All ages and abilities welcome.
