Sight singing with confidence

Sight singing with confidence
A mixed ability class using basic theory and working with exercises based on common rhythmic and melodic patterns.  The current repertoire of the Oratorio Choir and the Jazz choir will be referred to where appropriate.
The aim of the class is to develop and improve singer’s confidence in sightsinging. There will be explanations of basic theoretical points involving rhythm and pitch, and exercises will be based on these points. Participants are encouraged to sing, sometimes muted and sometimes as individuals, unmuted. The tone of the class is lighthearted, singers are encouraged to ask questions, to beat time and to sing scales and arpeggios thus absorbing the basic framework of melody.
