Pop Choir

Wednesdays 3rd / 10th / 17th August, 10.00 - 12.00 (£20 per session)

In this fun and relaxed Pop Choir, you will learn contemporary songs from pop, to soul, to jazz, to R’n’B. During a 2 hour lesson we will start with a vocal warm-up before learning a song - and the group can help choose it! This is the perfect setting for beginner singers to develop their confidence and voice. You will improve your vocal technique and placement, blending your voice with the rest of the choir and developing your musical ear with the learning of harmonies and with an accompaniment. Joining a choir is a great way to meet other like-minded singers and musicians and to discover a way of making music together. This course takes place over three weeks, with one session a week. You can join for all three sessions or just for two.
