SO WHAT'S STOPPING YOU?
I Can't Sing!
Our motto is SINGING IS FOR EVERYONE, because EVERYONE CAN SING, and we truely believe that. David and Marie are both highly experienced singing teachers. At the beginning of every rehearsal they will guide you through various singing exercises to help develop your singing voice. A belief that you can't sing usually comes from lack of confidence, come along and give it a go, you really do have nothing to lose.
I Can't Read Music
Not a problem. It's not essential for singers to be able to read music. It is useful to be able to follow it though, and we will teach you how to do this. All the notes are taught by ear and repetition and you are given rehearsal CDs to help with practise at home.
I Can't Commit To Every Week.
That's OK. We appriciate that things crop up that may make it difficult to get to every rehearsal. That's why we run a pay as you go system. £5.00 every week, if you can't make it, you don't pay. We always recap what we've done the week before, so if you've missed a week it's easy for you to catch up. Rehearsal CDs are usful for this also.
Do I Have To Audition?
No. Everyone is welcome at VivaVox. Just turn up and join in, we will never ask you to sing by yourself or audition for a solo if you don't want to.
I've Never Sung In A Choir Before, I Don't Know What Section To Sing With.
Don't worry, we'll help you find the most appropriate section of the choir sing with. You are also welcome to move around into different sections if you wish.
