The cost of a taster session is £9. You will be sent a discount code to take the cost of your taster session off the term fee. Please note that the membership fee is fixed, we do not offer a pay-as-you-go rate or discount if you join the term late.
Is there an age limit?
There’s no upper age limit, but we can only take singers aged 18 and over at present.
What music will we be singing?
I aim to offer a really rich variety of music, from folk songs to classical, to pop, to jazz and everything else. As a conductor I am reactive to the size, abilities and tastes of the group — each choir should have its own personality which is a combination of yours and mine.
What practice will I need to do in between rehearsals?
You will need to put in a little bit of time (an hour a week, spread over 7 days, is less than 10 minutes a day) to memorise words etc. There is usually a little bit of homework to revise a couple of songs to ensure we are making progress at each rehearsal.
I’ve never sung before, can I join?
Everyone aged 18+ is welcome. There are no auditions and you don’t need to have any previous singing experience. You’ll find that you pick things up as you go along and develop skills naturally. If you’re not used to singing regularly you’ll see an improvement in your voice after your first month or so. We always spend 15 minutes at the start having a good vocal warm up which may also include things like a bit of sight-reading practice, vocal techniques and ear training. If you are an experienced singer – great – I’ll be sure to throw some more challenging things your way and be really encouraging you to sing with good technique!
