­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Don't consider yourself a singer? Ever wanted to sing? Would you like to sing better?

Well now's your chance, - as a new mini Learn to Sing Course starts on Wednesday 22nd September FREE, and again on Wednesday 17 November, - to encourage men to sing, make new friends and experience all the fantastic health benefits that singing can bring.

The course is being run by the Award Winning Chorus Vocal Fusion Acapella, with their Director Zoe Peate, on Wednesdays at the Dial Post village hall 7.00 - 8.00. It offers the opportunity to sing close-harmony songs in the acapella & barbershop style, but we'll also provide you with skills, including breathing exercises and vocal support, which will help you to sing well in any style.

The Learn to Sing course is designed to help those who want to try out singing for the first time or make a welcome return. It includes a warm up session to prepare our bodies, voices and minds for singing, so this warm up will include some physical, vocal and mental exercises.

You will learn a song within the group, which makes it less daunting. Very importantly, you do not have to be able to read music. The chorus provides high quality digital learning tracks that are separated into the 4 parts (Tenor, Lead, Baritone, Bass) to facilitate easy learning of the song. As well, we have an excellent music team and experienced members ready to teach and support all members of the chorus. So don't be shy, come out and give it a try! You may just find an exciting and fun thing to add to your week.
