Entry requirements and level of this course?


This course is suitable for those who have a basic knowledge of singing technique and the ability to correctly pitch and understand their voice.

Students must have completed a singing beginners course and/or have previous singing experience and wish to further develop their vocal skills.  

Within this course students will further consolidate vocal technique, breathing exercises, posture and application of this technique across a broad repertoire.

The ability to hear notes and sing them back as well as good spoken and written english is required.

How will I be taught?


All courses are taught within groups.  Each week will begin with a thorough vocal warm up before going on to develop and apply key vocal techniques and approaches to develop your confidence and singing skills.

Students will have the opportunity to sing a broad range of repertoire each week.  Your voice will grow in strength and flexibility and you’ll gain a sense of control and confidence when singing. Best of all, you’ll have a lot of fun, and meet like-minded new people.

By the end of the course, what will I have achieved?


Students will have:

  • Developed confidence in their vocal ability, improving vocal expression, dynamics and musicianship.
  • Explored singing as part of an ensemble and as a solo singer.
  • An understanding of how the vocal mechanism works.
  • Developed effective breathing and singing technique.
  • Applied this technique across your chosen repertoire.
  • Demonstrated learnt technique within an informal sharing to fellow students on the final session.

After I complete this course, what are the next steps in my training?


Students may wish to repeat Level 2 within another genre before moving onto Level 3 singing courses.

Level 3 courses focus on the further development of your chosen genre through a series of comprehensive vocal exercises. There is a greater focus on harmony work and dynamics. Students will have the opportunity to explore individual songs with personal feedback about vocal technique, performance and style.
