"The only thing better than singing is more singing"
What is it?
Carry On Singing is a brand new online programme, designed to bring the joy of singing into all of our homes as we adjust to lives of social distancing. Whether you’re a seasoned singer or an enthusiastic shower-soloist, the Carry On Singing Programme will help keep you in fine voice, and all for the price of just one singing lesson. It’s time to cut through the chaos of Coronavirus, embrace the magic of music, and put the sing in social distanc-sing!
You can expect weekly warm-ups and fun, new exercises, as well as the chance to get to know and perform three songs – all from the comfort of your own home and in your own time. After weeks of training and private practice, you will then be asked to record your performance via either video or audio (whichever you’d prefer), before sending it direct to the Carry On Singing team, for us to produce a virtual concert video, which will be sent to everyone involved.
How does it work?
When you join us on a programme, you'll receive an email every Friday containing links to all of your materials. These will include video-led vocal warmups and exercises, video tuition for each vocal part (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass), as well as bespoke vocal tracks created by our team, and sheet music for those who want to follow along. We'll work on three songs in our 10 Week Online Programme.
The pre-recorded video tuition will be led by Laurie, who will guide you through your vocal part. You will be taught phrase by phrase and he will make sure to give you specific tips and tricks for any difficult sections or intricate harmonies.
Songs will be taught for three of the weekly sessions, spanning Weeks 1-9, with the final week, Week 10, being dedicated to Performance Week. During Performance Week, you will be able to put all your hard work into practice across the programme and record yourself performing your vocal part. You’ll then send that to us, and we will include it in our professionally produced virtual performance video.
