WHAT ARE THE ENTRY REQUIREMENTS AND LEVEL OF THIS COURSE?


This course is suitable for complete beginners and those who possess a passion and curiosity to learn more about their voice.

Students will learn about vocal technique, breathing, 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?


The Foundation courses are taught within groups and also incorporate solo masterclasses. Each week will begin with a thorough vocal warm up before going on to discover 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 greater confidence in their vocal ability and singing as part of a group.
  • Gained further insight into their individual voice and explored a solo song of their choice.
  • Grasped an understanding of the vocal mechanism and how sound is made.

  • Progressed through a number of vocal warm-ups and technique exercises.
  • Explored a range of creative workshops and styling activities.
  • Demonstrated learnt technique within an informal sharing to friends and family on the final session.

AFTER I COMPLETE THIS COURSE, WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS IN MY TRAINING?


Students may wish to do a beginners course and consolidate their technique before moving onto Level 2 singing courses.

Level 2 courses focus on solidifying technique, widening repertoire knowledge and developing tone, range and vocal style. Solo elements are also incorporated within level 2 where students are encouraged to sing solo within the ensemble songs.
