Gain confidence and performance skills in a weekly class led by a professional singing coach where you will learn:
- How to harmonise as a group
- Performance skills
- Vocal techniques
- How to protect your voice whilst singing
The first half an hour of each class will be focussed on improving vocal techique, using the Estill model. This important vocal technique breaks down the myths about singing and replaces them with the science behind how our voices actually work.
Don’t worry if you are nervous, part of the joy of singing in a group is the ability to grow your confidence without feeling that the spotlight is on you.
During the course you will sing a variety of music styles including pop, rock, Motown, soul and musical theatre. There are also opportunities to perform in public if you want to share and show off your newly found vocal skills.
