Our new Emerging Course will run in parallel with our Progressive Course in 2018, giving participants the opportunity to learn from a wide range of tutors, including Amy Bebbington, Sarah Tenant-Flowers, Peter Broadbent, James Davey, Martin Seymour and Joanna Tomlinson.

The new Emerging Course is designed for those who already have some experience in singing and/or conducting and will develop existing skills, enabling you to prepare your choir with greater confidence. The Progressive Course (previously known as Intermediate) is designed for those who work with a choir on a regular basis and wish to develop the technique they already have. There is also the option to take the DipABRSM exam at the end of the course for an additional cost, which can be discussed with tutors during the course. Progressive Course participants will also have the opportunity to work with a choir on the final session.

The venues are near Victoria and Waterloo mainline stations, making them easily accessible by public transport - find out where each venue is here.
