Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to audition?
No there are no auditions. You can just come along and join in.
Do I need to be able to read music?
No, we teach all of the songs by ear, so you don't have to be able to read sheet music.
Do I need to be a good singer?
Our aim is to help women to develop confidence in their voices and to enjoy singing together. We teach techniques and exercises that will help you to build on and strengthen your voice, so don't worry about what stage your voice is at currently.
Where are the Sessions and Workshops held?
We currently run our Sessions and Workshops in the Unitarian Church building at 72 Berkeley Street, Glasgow G3 7DS. Entrance to the building is via a buzzer. If you press the buzzer at the bottom of the panel, marked 'hall', we will answer and let you in.
How do I get there?
The Unitarian Church is located near Charing Cross, just along the road from the Mitchell Library. It's not far from Charing Cross train station and some of the main bus routes in the City Centre. There is also free parking available on Berkeley Street, and the surrounding streets, in the evenings and on a Saturday morning.
Do I need to let you know I am coming along?
You can pay in advance for the Sessions and Workshops via the payment links on our website. This books your place and lets us know that you are coming along. If you prefer to pay cash on the day it is helpful for us, in planning the class, to know that you are coming along. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will reserve a place for you.
What is the difference between a Session and a Workshop?
At our Sessions, we cover some vocal technique and then focus on learning and singing songs together. In our Workshops, we focus on a specific topic in more depth using exercises and songs to explore and learn.
What should I wear?
Avoid wearing tight clothing that restricts your breathing and uncomfortable footwear. Wear something you feel comfortable in, that allows you to move freely.
