About Let us Sing Solo Class (Summer)
Find your voice in a solo setting and project it with confidence, whether you feel you can’t sing or are an established singer who wants to improve and gain confidence.
What will you learn on this course?
This course will help you develop your confidence when singing and strengthen your vocal skills while learning how to care for your voice. No prior musical knowledge or singing experience is required.
The average session includes a vocal warm up, performing and discussing solo songs through either lyrics or sheet music, a short break to chat to your fellow Let Us Sing members, a musical game to work on coordination and/or aural skills and work on a group song number.
You will learn how to develop your voice through:
- Vocal exercises and warm ups
- Musical technique
- Aural perception and listening skills
- Skills in pitch, diction and voice care
There is an emphasis on solo performance technique looking at self-awareness and greater awareness of an audience.
Sessions mostly focus on individual solo song work with a small amount of group singing. The solo musical content is decided by the students, with some group songs chosen by the teacher to embrace a broad range of musical genres and styles.
At the end of each term there will be a showcase performance in the Hexagon Theatre with the Let Us Sing Group singers. If you are interested in group singing instead of/as well solo singing, please see the Let Us Sing Group Class course.
