Our singing classes aim to develop vocal technique, improve performance skills, build confidence and aid students in the development of projection, diction and breathing. Pupils cover a range a musical styles, with a predominant focus on musical theatre and contemporary singing. All pupils have the opportunity to work as an ensemble and on an individual basis with the teacher.
Pupils develop a well-rounded knowledge of musical theatre repertoire. From classic Broadway theatre (Rogers and Hammerstein, Kern, Rogers and Hart etc), to 70s and 80s musical theatre (Andrew Lloyd Webber, Boublil and Schönberg etc) to contemporary musical theatre (Schwartz, Menken, Lin Manuel Miranda etc).
Our contemporary singing classes allow students to discover their inner artist and explore a variety of musical styles. This includes pop/indie/Rock/folk/country/jazz and Soul.
