You don't need to have any experience, just an enjoyment of singing. We teach by ear, and you'll be amazed by the quick results are achieved. If you come on a taster night, you may well be with others all in the same boat. You don't need to be a singer at all, and no-one is listening to individual voices, we create a "wall of sound"
We don't use music notation or terminology, so there is no need to read music... easy!
We don't have choreographed dancing or gimmicks. We encourage singers to show their own personalities and create their own heartfelt movement, whatever that may be... and also offer dance workshops
The first night is completely free so that you can see if we're the choir for you. There is no pressure or hard sell, we leave it to you to contact the office if you would like to join where we will happily answer any questions and sign you up. Terms run on a rolling 12 weeks basis and are payable at £109.20 (inc vat), this covers your membership as a Funky Voices singer including the 2 hour weekly rehearsal. Payment is made for each 12 week block, refunds are not made for sessions missed by members, but you are welcome to make sessions up at other Funky Voices groups whenever you can so you never miss out. We run throughout the year, except 2 weeks at Christmas and bank holidays, you'll receive invoices that show all the dates.
Take as much out of Funky Voices as you want… all gigs, tours, competitions, tours workshops and rehearsals, or just rehearsals every week, or the odd gig, it's up to you. Performing within the gigs is such a buzz though, often members say they didn't have any intention of performing when they joined, but are now there at every gig. We offer members so many exciting opportunities including tours, competitions and concerts both in the UK and abroad, so far we have performed in Paris, Berlin, New York, Ireland, Barcelona, Turkey, Latvia. Again... there is no pressure.
