This choir is for grown-ups and all levels are welcome! 

 

Nothing can describe the feeling you get from singing in harmony with a bunch of people…expect community, support and much more! This choir is all about learning to blend with one another through a balanced vocal technique, building musicianship, learning to look beyond the music score and putting some style into what you sing. We love to go out and perform what we’ve practised so expect to have some social nights with us!

 

We launched the choir early in 2017 singing arrangements of Beyonce, Simon & Garfunkel, Annie Lennox and Queen, Amy Winehouse, U2, Foo Fighters and George Michael to name but a few. We’re always welcoming new friends and singers to practise new catchy and beautiful arrangements.

 

Space is limited to 12 people maximimum but if the demand is great, we’ll consider expanding, so please don’t be shy and do get in touch. The next term starts on September 5th 2018. If you’d like to find out more about the choir, you can send us a message.

It’s taken us a while as we’ve all been so busy, but finally, here it is… a video compilation of our students performing at our March Student Show. This was our busiest show yet, in both the number of performers and audience members, so we were delighted. A number of students are really starting to find their feet with performing and everyone did their absolute best – which is all we ask of them. Keep your eyes peeled for the next show in November 2016.

BAND WORKSHOP

Band Workshop is an exciting group class that we’ve been working on for a while. This is basically your chance to build not only your skills in playing, but also your confidence in playing with others and performing live.

It’s a 6-week course and will take place on Saturday mornings at 10:30am till 12:30pm and Thursday evenings at 7.30pm til 9.30pm. After the 6-weeks of sessions, we will all go on an outing to an Open Mic Night at one of the popular venues around town and you’ll perform the songs you’ve learned during the workshop, with your new bandmates.

The course will be lead by our newest Team Member, Devon, who is a very experienced band leader and drummer. He will guide you through 2 or 3 songs, talking about the roles of each instrument, the actual parts you play and how to get them to gel together nicely with everyone else, common phrases and terminology used in bands, the idea of Jamming and much, much more.

As we want to make this a practical course for everyone, the spaces will be limited so as to give all students plenty of playing time. In terms of requirements to join the course:

  • You should be able to attend every class as your bandmates will be relying on you.
  • You should be 14 years old or above (we hope to start a kids workshop very soon, sorry kids).
  • You should feel fairly confident that you can learn at least one song in 6 weeks.
  • Enthusiasm and energy!

Congrats Weisan!

Just as all her students do, Weisan works hard all year to improve and develop her skills. All this work paid off last month when she passed her IVA Level 3 exam to become a Certified Level 3 Instructor. Not only that but she was also given the honour of becoming the IVA Representative for Hong Kong… double whammy and double congratulations!! Well done Weisan.

Through the summer, we had a lovely group of students who came every week to prepare this song for our regular performance at CCC (an elderly care home). We’re sure you’ll agree that this is a beautiful version of the Elvis classic.
