Learn to break down and sing any style of song.
ABOUT THIS EVENT
Advanced (3 years +) This is our highest level of class.
Learn to break down and sing any style of song as Lloydie and Joe take you on a six-week musical rollercoaster ride through a diverse set of musical genres. Each week, the group will have a different musical style to get to grips with. We will focus on lyrical themes, emotional content and musical styles to help you improvise a wide variety of songs.
This course is for people with a good grasp of musical improv. You will know what a verse, chorus and bridge are and already be confident in delivering a solo song as well as a group number.
Get on board, fasten your seatbelt and get ready for the musical ride of your life!
