An all-day singing workshop taking place on March 16th, 2024, for people who would like to learn Music Theatre Chorus songs from various musicals and in various styles based on participants’ choices in a relaxed environment with a very experienced singing educator. Work together with others to blend and express some of our most favourite numbers to enhance your well-being and confidence in expressing yourself through your voice with material tailored to you.
As part of the introduction, targeted physical, breathing, and vocal exercises will be used to help with the styles and techniques we will be covering in the day. The day will include a lot of singing together as a group but also will provide opportunities for solo work when appropriate as well as own choices of songs that will be arranged appropriately to the group. Both older and contemporary musicals can be covered.

Abingdon and Witney College are subject to Ofsted visits and have a responsibility to ensure we meet/exceed their requirements. As a result of this you will find you will be expected to understand the government initiatives around Safeguarding, Prevent and Fundamental British Values as well as complete quality monitoring paperwork as part of the course.

Fee information
Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

The rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options. You can find more information on our Fees and Bursaries page - search "Fees and Bursaries" at the top of the page.
