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?


All courses are taught within groups.  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
  • Grasped an understanding of how the vocal cords work and how sound is made
  • Demonstrated good posture when singing and an understanding of the breathing mechanism
  • Progressed through a number of vocal warm-ups and technique exercises
  • Applied this technique across a broad range of repertoire

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


You may wish to repeat beginners and consolidate your 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.
