Can I attend the first session with my child?
Of course! This is a very common request we get. We have space at that back of our choir room for parents wanting to see what it’s all about.
What are the fees involved each term?
Vocal Harmony Kids is £50 a term (ten weeks), which works out at £5 a session. Your first week is free, and payments are termly (we don’t offer weekly pay as you go payments).
Does my child have to audition?
No. At Vocal Harmony Kids there are no entry auditions and no one has to read any complicated music.
I don’t know my child’s vocal range!
We have various sections in our choir to suit all sorts of voices. Every child is welcome to try out all three sections to see which one works best for them.
Are there performances my child can get involved with?
Yes! We aim to put on a performance at the end of each term, with the largest one being around June / July as our end of year showcase. The performances are completely optional but we try to encourage as many kids to do it as possible!
Are your staff DBS / CRB checked?
Yes. All staff have an up to date DBS check. We also hold public liability insurance, safeguarding policies, health and safety policies and risk assessments. For details please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
When and where do you rehearse?
We meet every Monday evening in term time, all in conjuction with local council school dates. We run three ten week terms each year, and rehearsal times are 6-7pm on a Monday evening at Bishop Gore School in Sketty.
Help! My child is really nervous!
Joining a choir with lots of other people can be a daunting experience. We try to make it as easy as possible. We encourage new members to arrive 15 minutes before hand to get settled in. Someone will show you where to go, and at no point will your child have to sing on their own.
Is there a specific uniform to buy?
Not at present. We will be offering T Shirts throughout the year, but this is not compulsory. Our choir colour is purple so at performances any purple T shirt would be great!
How do i make the payment?
Our online payments system handles this quickly and securely. Just sign up and you will recieve an email with all the details on how and when to pay. It’s safe, quick and very easy.
What age group is Vocal Harmony Kids for?
We currently accept children aged 7 – 12 years old. If your child is 6 and is turning 7 in the school year that they join then that is no problem as well.
What happens during the rehearsals?
We start off with some singing games and vocal warm ups. We then look at the songs for each term, usually having a short 5 minute break around 6.30.
