Who Can Join?


The City Academy Collective is open to anyone with some previous singing experience. The choir is not suitable for absolute beginners.

If you do not have the experience required, we recommend you complete a Beginners Singing and Improvers Singing course before progressing to the choir.

We are always looking for new members - so if you have a love of performing and are looking to develop your vocal technique, please contact info@city-academy.com for more information.

As a member of the Collective, you don’t have to commit to every rehearsal evening, as we appreciate people have busy lives. However, putting on a choir show takes a lot of hard work, practise at home and commitment in order for it to be a success, so we do ask that you attend as many classes as you can.

City Academy Collective tutors


All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
