If you're new to singing and want an opportunity to learn the foundations needed to access and ENJOY your voice then this fun, relaxed approach to singing tuition could be perfect!
Adult Open Class focuses on the fundamentals of using your voice, offering training on breath technique, range, vocal health, tuning, basic theory, how to follow along with written music, and the number 1 skill for singing: CONFIDENCE!
We work at a pace that suits the class as a whole, and we do offer the option to participate in our Academy Shows (July/Dec) for those that feel up to the challenge! The 6 month programme is designed to function as both a group vocal lesson, as well as an introduction to singing in harmony, and is a 'feeder' into our Adult Crew.
Crews are our non-auditioned, pop a cappella training ensembles, and are the perfect space for singers to build confidence and just have a go!
Our Crew classes are aimed at nurturing a love of music and harmony, as well as offering the highest quality vocal training, all in an level-appropriate format. In our weekly classes we introduce students to the basic elements of ensemble singing and pop a cappella harmony, such as vocal technique, score reading, tuning, teamwork and confidence - all while singing some seriously great music fresh off the radio!!!
Set up to take students through a 6 month training cycle, the Semester culminates in a featured performance in our professional level Academy Shows twice a year! For more information or an Academy Prospectus please email us on: email@example.com
Our Squads are curated ensembles of auditioned vocalists, often with only 1 or 2 voices per part, and are for singers with a bit more experience.
Building on the skills developed in our Crews, the main focus for a Squad is on preparing music to a professional level. Squads train weekly, with additional rehearsals ahead of a performance. As well as showcasing their work in our Academy Shows (June/Dec), our Squads are often invited to perform at community events around the city.
Currently the Academy has 3 Squads, based on age, and each Squad can take up to 14 vocalists. The 14 places are auditioned at the start of each year, offering placements for a 1 year season. We also hold auditions in the middle of the year for any vacancies that may have come up.
Previously our Squads have toured as guest artists with Ali Harper, performed at local Festivals, and in 2017 our 5-piece Premier Ensemble were crowned the winners of TVNZ's reality a cappella competition 'The Naked Choir' taking out the title of 'NZ's Best A Cappella Group'!
Our next Squad auditions are coming up on Saturday 13th July, so get in touch with us as soon as possible if you’d like to book an audition, or click on the ‘Register For A Class’ button at the top of this page.
Brand new for 2019 we are so excited to be launching a range of pop a cappella classes especially for the littlest human’s in your life!
Our Beat Boppers programme offers fun, interactive singing and musicianship classes for 3-6 year olds, filled with pint-sized versions of all the cool elements of pop a cappella - including singing, harmony, rhythm, solfa/solfege, body percussion, and even a bit of beat boxing!
BeatBoppers was developed upon the understanding that all children have the ability to sing and to experience the joy of the expression of music. Exposing them to the fundamentals of music early increases their capacity, not just for music, but for all major forms of learning and development.
Our bespoke music programme is set up to help young minds develop an understanding of the key elements needed for musical development, packaged in a way that is relevant to them. We use things like colours, animals, sounds, and the body itself to help them comprehend what goes on inside their ‘instrument’ when they sing. The programme is set up to run across 8 weeks, and each week builds on the skills learnt previously. Our passionate and experienced tutors will have your kids humming, singing and exploring their voice before you can say “Pitch Perfect”!
NB: For each BeatBoppers class to run we require a minimum number of 6 enrolments. Should we have less, we will instead combine the ages to make one larger class. Each BeatBoppers class has a maximum capacity of 16 students. Students under the age of 5 need an active adult to participate alongside them.
No problem, get in touch by email to enquire about a trial class - we’ve got lots of information available but sometimes it’s easiest to come and experience it for yourself!
