Weekend Vocal Workout

Mary King artistic director

Now in its twelfth year, the Weekend Vocal Workout at the Royal Academy of Music offers aspiring singers the opportunity to explore their potential through an intensive programme of practical workshops and masterclasses. Directed by voice expert Mary King, taster sessions led by experienced professionals will cover a range of musical genres including musical theatre, gospel, rock & pop and jazz, and each participant will be given individual feedback in a solo masterclass. Professional development discussions held throughout the weekend will give practical advice on embarking on a career in singing. An informal performance will round off the weekend.

The cost is £120 for the weekend – bursaries will be available. The weekend is open to anyone over the age of 16 on 7th July 2017.
