Our singing classes are simply not karaoke classes. Students at Shine will develop skills in breathing, pitch, tone, harmony, voice projection, performance and microphone techniques. We teach songs from all genres including pop, jazz, R&B, soul, rock and musicals.
Our classes are taught by a tertiary trained professional teacher who is passionate about providing the correct technique to our students at the correct age. Just like all of our muscles in the body, the throat muscles grow until the age of young adulthood. Therefore, it is important that singing technique be adapted to the appropriate age group by an appropriately trained teacher. We have several age groups to cater for our 6-18 year students.
The class begins with warming up the vocal cords using scales. The students then work on controlling their voice with technique which is then applied to learning a song. The song is first taught using vocal tracks which allows the students to learn the words. As the class progresses the students are taught to sing the song to a backing track &/or the keyboard.
The Singing classes participate in our End of Year Concert in which they are typically expected to perform in one concert.
Shine also offers 30 minute Private Singing lessons to students on a weekly basis. These classes are an excellent way to accelerate your child’s ability. Many of our Private Singing students also perform Solo’s or Duet’s at our End of Year Concerts.
No dress code. Students will be required to bring a folder and pen to their class.
