Youth Vocal Arts [aged 15 and under]

This programme is specially designed for younger singers 15 and under, to complement having individual voice lessons either at Rata School of Music or with private teachers. It is also ideal for new students as a primer for individual lessons. Classes will be in small groups focusing on song preparation, performance stage skills and singing technique.

Equipped with a full palette of colours and a wide range of brushes, a vocal artist can paint any picture they choose.

When young children sing, it is instinctive, expressive and fearless. At Rata, we want to ensure every young singer continues to feel comfortable in their voice, so that they can bypass the stage of self-consciousness.

Ruth Armishaw has vast experience sharing these tools with children of all ages, in classes that encourage experimentation, physicality and fun. Her ability to demonstrate and explain concepts at just the right level gives every student access to her knowledge.
