A few words from our students

Robert

Such an amazing tutor! She was supportive, gave constructive feedback and was always positive. The content for the course was aimed just right for our group and we were able to be a little creative with it. I met some great people and would recommend taking a course with City Academy.


SINGING FOUNDATION COURSE CONTENT:

Our Singing Foundation course has been designed to give you a solid foundation in singing. Course content will include:

  • Technique – developing your vocal range, improving your breath control and discovering a new found confidence in your voice. Students will be introduced to a number of techniques and approaches including the Estill voice qualities.
  • Repertoire – exploring a range of music genres and harmony work during ensemble classes.
  • Learning how to achieve a good quality vocal performance while using your voice in a safe and healthy manner.
  • Solo – working on your individual approach and styling during solo rehearsals.
  • Workshops – acting through song, acappella, songwriting and movement.

Showcase:

This is an opportunity to perform rehearsed songs and demonstrate the skills and techniques you have gained during the course. You will be able to invite your family and friends on the final afternoon to enjoy an informal showcase, which will be held in line with government guidelines at the time.

WHAT ARE THE ENTRY REQUIREMENTS AND LEVEL OF THIS COURSE?

Students must be able have a good level of spoken and written English.

HOW WILL I BE TAUGHT?

Our 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.  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.
  • Demonstrated good posture when singing and an understanding of effective breathing.
  • 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.
