The course will focus on the popular music genres (pop, rock, jazz, musical theater etc.) and most of the songs are chosen according to the group’s wishes.
This course is for you who are 18 years old and up and have a craving for singing is welcome to join the course. To get the most out of the course, individual work outside the class is highly recommended.
The goal of the course is to begin to understand how the voice works and have fun with it singing in a safe group environment, maybe even trying a little solo.
No previous experience required. However, a carefree and open-minded attitude is warmly welcomed.
We sing in small groups and the course focuses on getting in touch with the singing voice through basic vocal and breathing exercises conducted in a group. We will learn new songs each week and the participants will also get some individual tuition in singing and the use of voice registers. We will also talk about interpretation and performing. Note that the actual course content depends a lot on the group’s skills and the course instructor chooses the songs together with the group accordingly. It is advisable to talk with the course instructor about any special wishes you have concerning the course.
Please note that there is no lesson on October 21 and November 4.
All of our singing courses offer continuing courses where you can further develop your voice. The recommended continuing course is Sing It - Continuing course. It is also possible to take this course again since the courses never end up being identical with each other. If you want to learn to accompany yourself on guitar or piano or try your abilities in songwriting, we provide courses to help you get started.
Take your smartphone with you and record the sessions! Singing in front of others may make you nervous at first, but we will work on that as well. Our teachers are good and let everyone develop at their own pace.
