Singing for Enjoyment.

The College has not been able to offer these classes during lock-down.

You will learn

The class have selected as a text book The Art of Song Grades 4-5, High Voice, from which graded songs can be selected.

We also sing traditional and popular songs from Appleby and Fowler collection and a variety of part songs and rounds, easy arrangements of well known pop songs and Christmas Carols. The exact course content will be determined by the type of voices that come and the ability of the group as a whole.  The warm-up follows the order of exercises recommended by Karen Sell.  It incorporates breathing exercises, establishment of vocal 'sob', the addition of 'twang', the development of range and flexibility.
