The Singing Course sessions are now held on a more flexible basis. Each of the five 1hr45min course sessions (including the first session - which acts as a stand alone workshop) can be booked & attended when the student is ready. There is no obligation to book subsequent sessions, but the course sessions must be taken in order. There are also additional optional workshops which complement and help with other specific areas of your learning (Pitching & Ear Training. Rhythm & Timing. Harmony & Theory. Performance & Microphone Techniques. Improvisation).

This isn’t a music theory, ear-training, harmony or songwriting course (although some elements of these will be taught within the course) these are taught in optional add of sessions which you might be recommended to attend or choose to attend). This course is not genre/style specific (although we do look at aspects of singing technique re genres/styles) nor based on songs as the material (though you will sing songs of your choosing to work on in order to develop your singing). Your voice is the material being worked on & my job is to get you singing at your best whatever you sing. Come with what ever style(s) you sing.

There are no musical or academic requirements in order to go on the course, but a good level of spoken and aural English will be necessary in order to understand the teaching & materials

Where: Held at Ithaca house, 27 Romford road, Stratford, east London, E15 4LJ

When: Mondays 7:45-9:30pm (see 'What's on')

Text Books & Vocal Exercise CDs are available that accompany the Singing Course - providing additional materials, activities, tasks & exercises to increase your progress
