Sing ON

Fundamentals of Singing

Tuesday 16 January 2024

This event has passed.

In these beginners’-level workshops you will build the foundations of good singing practice, focusing on key elements such as breath control and aural skills.

Whether you’ve never sung before, or have some singing experience and want to go back to basics, these sessions will give you the skills and confidence you need to get into singing.

Each session is standalone, but the workshops will compliment each other, so you can either book just one or both of them depending on your preference.

What should I expect on the day?

In the session you will take part in some fun warm ups before exploring vocal exercises and songs that will improve your singing technique. The activity will last one hour (11am-12pm), and afterwards we will provide refreshments and a chance to socialise with other participants.  All of our sessions are led by friendly professionals from our Opera North Education team.

Do I need to read music?

You do not need to read music for these sessions, and no previous singing experience is required.
