Who Can Join?

City Academy Encore 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 Level 2 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 for more information.

As a member of Encore, 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 commitment, hard work, and practice at home for it to be a success, so we do ask that you attend as many classes as you can.

Choir Director

City Academy Encore is run by Aaron Nice who trained at Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts, and is an experienced performer, Musical Director, and singing tutor.

As a singing teacher and choir leader, Aaron focuses on the fun side of singing, helping singers develop confidence and overcome nerves in a safe and supportive environment, whilst concentrating on correct vocal technique and expanding and exploring repertoire knowledge.

“I always assure my students that there is absolutely nothing to be nervous about. My job is to help you achieve your absolute best. The opportunity to be part of a choir and to learn and develop new skills whilst meeting new like-minded people is a wonderful thing!”



As a Company member you will receive 20% discount on all City Academy courses* for the duration of your membership.

*Please note, Drama School, Private Singing Lessons, membership to Resident Companies & Dance and Singing Foundation Courses are excluded from this offer.

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.
