Course Description

Join us in London for five inspirational days of training in best practice vocal leadership technique, offering Foundation/Intermediate 1 and Intermediate 2 courses to cater for beginners upwards! Booking is now open.

Confirmed course dates (all Saturdays): 7 March; 4 April; 2 May; 6 June; 27 June.

Whether you’re wanting to try your hand at conducting for the first time, improve your musicianship skills or even if you’re looking to refresh the skills you’ve acquired on previous courses, you can look forward to a challenging and enjoyable time on our 5-Day Course for 2020, with high quality tuition provided in a relaxed and stimulating atmosphere. Courses are delivered in two ways: technique sessions that include practical demonstrations, and workshop sessions where participants put into practice what they have learnt. 5-Day Course participants have an enviable amount of personal podium time – more so than is available during our weekend training events – and also sing for each other to aid their learning and observation skills.
