Through singing, intuitive songwriting and creative voice-work, we learn to connect with and express more of who we are and what is important to us in this one “wild and precious life”
This on-going one year group is an opportunity and invitation for those with a strong commitment to explore, expand and develop their natural singing voice and creativity.
The course will cover a range of skills and experiences and will focus on developing vocal ability, intuitive and structured song-writing, improvisation, harmony, rhythm, solo singing, group singing, performance skills, recording technique, and singing in different genres of song and style.

IMPORTANT NOTE - FEES
In accepting a place on a course you are entering into a contract and the full fee becomes payable.
To make courses more accessible to those who cannot afford a one off payment, the facility to pay in installments is offered.
This does not in any way alter the fact that you have committed to pay the whole amount due.
The full fees will still be payable should you withdraw from the course or miss sessions
