Pop Choir

Pop Choir (7-14 yrs)

4th August / 17th August, 10.00 - 12.00 (£44 for 2 sessions)

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 (there is a break in the week of the 7th August). You can join for all three sessions or just for two. If you are aged 14-18 years and you’d like to level-up your singing, then take a look at our Vocal Work Out! course too, which runs just after our Pop Choir.
