Singing Performance

Singing Performance

Looking to improve your vocal training and perform your singing for an audience? Develop your performance skills in this course through advanced vocal techniques, solo singing and an end-of-course showcase to friends and family. Performing will help gain confidence and technique in your vocal abilities, and allow you to take your training further.

SINGING PERFORMANCE COURSE OVERVIEW

Each student will prepare a solo song of approximately 3 minutes in length, which is worked on throughout the course with the tutor and then performed at the final showcase. Students will be introduced to a broad variety of musical genres through the preparation of two ensemble numbers, also to be performed at the final showcase.

Learn advanced level group-singing techniques including, three part harmony, choral balancing, dynamics and articulations and solo opportunities within an ensemble song.

Students will have the chance to hone their individual technique through regular one-on-one sessions with the tutor on their solo songs. These sessions will be in front of the entire group, allowing everyone to benefit collectively and apply the tutor’s advice to their own processes.

No Venue

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.
