Solo Singing

This course may be delivered online - please see the course information box to confirm.

Your course is aimed at developing an understanding of the nature of solo singing including developing vocal and performing skills in beginners, intermediate and more experienced singers

Course Content

Your course will enable you to cover a wide range of repertoire in a supportive and friendly environment. Performance in the classroom will play a large part, with students performing to other members of the group. This is designed to build confidence in performance and to develop the art of critical assessment through listening.

This is a group class and for timing reasons there will be no individual vocal tuition or training. However, time will be given to discussion of the nature of performance, common vocal problems and how to overcome nervousness and build up confidence.

Your course will also support you in improving and developing your singing through wide range of topics including exercises to build up a basic vocal technique, basic sight reading, music theory and notation.
