Private singing lessons are crucial for developing a marvellous voice but they aren’t the be-all and end-all of becoming a competent, well-rounded singer. Can you sing in 3-part-harmony while staying in tune? What about improvising a solo on top of other singers? Do you have stage presence? Can you hear your own volume and balance it with other singers? Can you communicate musically with other musicians? Our Glee Clubs and Musical Theatre School and summer camps will help you develop these skills while making friends and having fun!
