About the Course


Whether you're a beginner or looking to enhance your skills, you'll learn practical techniques while singing amongst our experienced and supportive 40-member chorus.

The main focus of the course is the hands-on experience of learning and singing a four-part a cappella arrangement of "Weather With You" by Crowded House. Along the way, you'll also learn some foundational vocal production skills, including:

  • Alignment: Body Awareness
  • Breathing to Sing
  • Phonation: How We Produce Sound
  • Resonance: Maximising Your Vocal Tone
  • Vowels and Diphthongs: Clarity In Singing
  • Vocal Registers: Chest, Head, and Mixed Voice

Sing, learn, perform!

In the final week you will have the opportunity to perform the song we have learned with the whole chorus in a mini-concert in front of invited family and friends.

Do I need to be able to read music?

No. While the ability to read music is helpful, it is not necessary to complete the course successfully. We will provide good quality audio learning tracks along with the sheet music to help everyone efficiently learn the song. Once you have registered, we will send you a link to these resources.


Location

Beaumaris Community Centre
66 Constellation Drive, Ocean Reef 

This is the location for all but one session, which is noted below in the schedule.


Schedule

Preaparation

We will provide you with the sheet music, learning tracks, and a guide before your first session.

While it's not mandatory, it's a good idea to start familiarising yourself with the song at this stage.

Additionally, you will want to start thinking about the voice part you'd like to sing — there are four options! If you're already aware of your vocal range from previous singing experience, great. If not, listening to and singing along with the learning tracks will help you determine your range.

Course Schedule

The course runs from July 23 to September 3, with seven consecutive weekly sessions on Tuesday nights. Each session starts at 7:00 pm and concludes at 8:45 pm.
