Singing for Fun

Singing for Fun

Lessons will concentrate on melody, harmony and performance, whilst maintaining focus on the core pedagogical components; the primal sound, posture and alignment, breathing and support.  Over the 10 week course students will engage with a range of singing styles, including but not limited to Musical Theatre, Pop and Classical.  Dependent on class size, there may be opportunities for students to experience one – to – one coaching.  


Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course students will have had the opportunity to: 

  • To sing safely and take care of their voice
  • To use their voice to the best of their ability
  • To build confidence in sing and performing as a group and an individual.


Your Tutor

Jessica Burnes Prior to pursuing a career as a teacher, I graduated from the University of Derby with a BA (Jnt. Hons) in Creative Writing, Film and Television and Theatre Studies. I have a strong background in musical theatre, achieving success in theory and performance with the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) and the London College of Music (LCM). I give private singing tuition, open to all ages, in a fun, creative and stimulating learning environment which motivates and inspires. My current students have shown continuous progress in vocal ability and confidence over the last five years. During the past two years I have worked as a cover drama teacher for Stagecoach Performing Arts at both the Derby and Nottingham Schools, responsible for planning and delivering fun and engaging games and activities. I enthusiastically participate in drama and choir productions, fund-raising events for local charities and am supportive of community projects.


An additional fee applies to this course for the purchase of sheet music (no more than £15). This fee will be paid directly to the tutor and not at the point of enrolment.
