This course will help you to find your voice in a solo setting and project it with confidence, whether you feel you can’t sing or you're an established singer who wants to improve or gain confidence. No former musical knowledge is required.
If you are interested in group singing instead of/as well as solo singing, please see the Let Us Sing Group Class page.
What will you learn on this course?
The average session will include a group 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.
This course is designed to improve your vocal technique through: vocal exercises and warm ups; musical technique; aural perception/listening skills; as well as skills in pitch, diction and voice care. There is emphasis on solo performance technique looking at self-awareness and greater awareness of the audience.
Sessions mostly focus on individual solo song work with a small amount of group singing. At the end of each term, participants choose solo pieces to perform at the Let Us Sing Showcase, performing alongside the Let Us Sing Group Class.
The solo musical content is decided by the students, with some group songs chosen by the teacher embracing a broad range of musical genres and styles.
Through this course attendees further develop their confidence, technical vocal skills as well as learn to care for their voice.
