Learn To Sing
Warning! Singing is extremely addictive and can be very good for your health.
If you would like to learn more about the art of singing along with other like minded chaps then this could be the thing for you.
Periodically Shannon Express runs Learn to Sing courses. These are free to join and all the material, training and support is provided to help you make the most of your endeavours.
Singing as a group you will be given a very quick, basic voice test to decide which of the four parts sits most comfortably with your vocal range (note it says as a group - you won't need to perfform a solo!). You will then be issued with music and a teach track for a simple song. You don't need to read music by the way - most of us learn by singing along to the teach track.
This song will then form the basis of a six week course. Courses are either run as a day event at a weekend or are spread over 6 weeks on a Thursday evening from 19:30 to 21:00.
The courses are practical and you will be given tuition in posture, breathing and breath control, producing a resonant sound, matching vowel sounds and many other hints, tips and techniques. These will be applied to the song that you are learning and as the course unfolds you will see for yourselves how the sound that you make improves week on week. Once you have rung your first chord with a group of fellow singers you will know why this is such an addictive hobby.
On completion of a course you can decide for yourselves whether you wish to audition to become a member of Shannon Express or not. If you do then great, if you don't well then actually that's also great because you've given it a go and hopefully you will have had some fun along the way and made some new friends.
We will publish details of courses on this website, on our Facebook page as well as in the wider community and local press.
If you are interested in a learn to sing course please do let us know by sending us a message through the Contact Us page or by ringing Paul on 07848 972689. The reason we would encourage you to do this is beacuse we will run a course of the demand is there.
Every great journey begins with the first step - so seriously, what is the worst that could happen?
