Here is a singing class like no other!
Are you someone who thinks that you can’t sing, and resorts to the solitary audience of the shower? Singcognito welcomes you to join with those who feel the same. Here you will discover that you can be taught the techniques needed, in order to sing in tune and you will be able to share in the joy of singing with others just like yourself. You can now step out of the shower and move towards being a confident singer, and be able to share your new found skills with friends and family. Your tutor, Mark Bobb is a professional musician who guarantees to make these classes fun and fulfilling!
This class is for those who are either new to singing, or have done some singing before and want to learn or refine the techniques in order to improve your singing. This course will teach you how to sing in tune and in parts using a repertoire of familiar songs as well as building the core technical and aural skills. It is very much about enjoying singing so expect plenty of fun along the way. We will hopefully choose songs that everybody knows.
Participants will be provided material to practice from either a CD or via a web link to download onto your favourite mp3 player. Goals will be set after a few weeks to ensure all participants aims are met.
