Established in 2013, The Oxford and Cambridge Singing School is for boys and girls aged 7–13 who love to sing. The Singing School was established to give children the opportunity to sing great classical music with world class coaches in a relaxed environment and to develop their confidence and ability in singing and performing. We run courses in four cities throughout the UK and in 2018 we are excited to be launching our first course in Australia in April 2018.
Based at St George’s College, UWA, children will learn some beautiful music and at the same time gain a background in vocal technique, music theory and history. Courses include whole-group singing, musical games and exercises to improve sight reading, small group vocal coaching. Each day concludes with an informal concert, which families are invited to attend.
The Autumn course in Perth will be led by Dr Edward Wickham (Director of Music, St Catharine’s College, Cambridge), and Anna Lapwood (Director of Music, Pembroke College, Cambridge) both of whom have considerable experience working with children’s voices at the highest level.
