The collective singing course allows you to discover singing within a group while learning to sing individually, accompanied on the piano or with karaoke. The small group of students progresses throughout the year until they are able to sing individually in front of an audience at the end of year concert which takes place in June.

The group allows you to become familiar with vocal performance in public in a friendly and warm atmosphere. The singing course is based on a progressive and playful pedagogy which allows to approach all aspects of vocal technique and interpretation in all styles of French and international music repertoire.

Vocal technique is discussed at the start of the year because it is intended to facilitate interpretation: breathing, placement of the voice, articulation, projection, work on vowels and the role of consonants. After the technical exercises, the student is accompanied on the piano or by karaoke, on the songs he has worked on. Then, during the course of the year, interpretation and scenic expression are addressed, with work on the expression of emotions, gestures and stage movement. At the end of the year, a show allows students to perform in public.
