What is the course about?
To build confidence and vocal technique appropriate to contemporary styles of singing.
What will we cover?
Each session will comprise a physical warm-up and technical exercises to build a support for the voice, followed by learning to sing a song and negotiating musical issues that arise. Mostly group singing, but solo singing will be featured.
What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...
- enjoy improved confidence and better sense of your own voice
- present a pop song effectively
- understand the singing class context.
What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
Students must be able to sing in tune, and have the desire to sing in public. This is an introductory course, so no other experience is necessary.
How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?
You will sing as a group and solo, there will be some tutor demonstration; and feedback on your efforts; and a performance to the class.
Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?
Music materials will be supplied. You may find it useful to record the sessions.
When I've finished, what course can I do next?
Rock, pop and soul singing, Jazz singing classes, and ensembles (e.g. A cappella or pop choir).
