What will it be like

Throughout the course, we will work through a variety of songs in a fun, encouraging and creative environment. We will use the process of learning songs as a pathway to developing confidence, vocal & performance technique and overall musicianship.
The learners will have the opportunity to work as an ensemble, in small groups and as soloists and will receive individual constructive feedback throughout. The learners will also be supported to identify styles and song choices that will suite them for future performances. On the final day of the course, the group will have the opportunity put everything into practice by to participating in either a group or solo performance.
