Summer Singing Week

05th - 09th August 2024
AGES 8-13


Summer Singing Week | 2024

We are excited to be back for the third year of our annual Summer Singing Week!

A course designed for children who love to sing which is led by a team of experts in working with young voices and musicians. All children will learn incredible new songs in different styles and languages alongside other talented and enthusiastic young singers. A carefully planned schedule of fun and engaging classes, workshops and rehearsals means that throughout the week our young singers will develop singing and musicianship skills, learn a wide range of repertoire, play fun singing games and work through inspiring musical activities.


Our goal is to fill our students with confidence in their voices and new found musical skills which we will then showcase at the end of the week in a concert for family and friends to see.


Only £90 per child for the whole week!

"The children really enjoyed the course - it was an incredible experience to have this exposure to so much new music and such a high standard of training"


“Everyone was so supportive and I made loads of new friends and I learnt loads of music that I didn’t already know”


"About two weeks after the end of the course Lizzy marched into the bathroom and informed me we were going to sing a round together. She had never sung a round prior to taking the course. Now months later she still sings her favourites"
