Last day for enrolment: May 25
This course is held in English and are dedicated for you who are 18 years old and up and have either a lot of background singing on your own or just an interest to try out or start to develop your solo singing - both ways are fine! Maybe you’ve attended our intermediate course and are ready to challenge yourself further. Teaching is meant to be individual and we work with your own interest and experience as a ground.
The goals of the course are to develop technical skills further, give insight into singing different genres and styles, and work on becoming more self-confident when using the voice and singing solo.
We practice together in a small group with a maximum of 6 students with focus on different technical and musical things inside the pop-rock-soul-jazz-music styles. During each class everyone will also get to work on solo singing in front of the other group with song(s) of your own choice. To get the most out of the course individual work outside the class is highly recommended.
Things to work during the classes can be for example:
- How to handle your voice and tone.
- Work with specific singing technical issues.
- Work with genre-specific questions with song you have chosen yourself.
- Musical phrasing.
- Interpretation and self-expression.
- Microphone technique.
- Being on stage/performing.
It is advisable to talk with the course instructor about any special wishes you have concerning the course.
Thursdays 2 June and 9 June at 17:00-19:15 and Saturday-Sunday 4 June, 5 June and 11 June at 11: 00-13:15.
It is advisable to take this course again since the courses never end up being identical with each other. Each individual is expected to set new goals at the beginning of each course. 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 - but please note that theese courses is held in Swedish.
