Entry requirements and level of this taster?


This taster 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 tasters are taught within groups.  The taster 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.

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


Students may wish to join a Beginners or a Level 2 singing course.

Beginners courses provide an excellent foundation for absolute beginners, as well as for those who have had some basic vocal training but want to gain a more in-depth knowledge of singing technique.

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.

Singing - Taster tutors


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.
