Frequently asked questions
Do I need to bring anything with me?
Nope, just yourself - although I would recommend bringing a bottle of water or a hot drink for the break.
How long is each term?
Usually 10 weeks with a 1 week break in the middle; inline with the local school terms (although this can sometimes vary depending on when the school term begins and ends).
Is there an audition to join?
Not at all! All voices are welcome!
What is a Natural Voice Choir?
Our Musical Director, Aaron, is a member of the Natural Voice Network. "Create an accepting community is an essential element of our approach: a community where singing together is a natural experience that is open and accessible to all." - NVN
I have never sung before/ I haven't sung since I was at school / I have been told I can't sing, can I still join?
Absolutely! If you're not sure where your voice will fit into the choir, let me know and I can help you find the part that your voice naturally leans towards.
Do I need to be able to read sheet music?
No, everything is taught through call and response (I sing a bit, you sing it back).
I won't be able to make it every week, is that okay?
Yes of course! Totally understanding that life gets busy sometimes!
What kind of music do you sing?
We sing a variety of music from around the world, including: indigenous folk music, gospel, pop, spiritual and more!
Are there any gigs? Do I have to perform?
We usually offer an informal sharing at the end of each term for our friends and family to come and listen to the songs we have been working on. There are also other opportunities for us to perform at community events around London throughout the year.
Why can't I access the members page of the website?
Members are able to request the password for this section of the website. On this page are all of the sound files for the songs we're working on this term, for you to listen to at your leisure.
