Our group singing classes provide a relaxed, friendly and enjoyable setting where both beginners and advanced singers can grow in confidence and improve their vocal skills.
Why choose this class?
Through our sessions, you’ll improve your breathing techniques, vocal support and articulation, vocal range, pitch and accuracy. We explore a wide range of music and singing styles; from chart to musical, gospel to swing strengthening performance and harmony skills and learning to listen and work as a group.
There is also the opportunity for individuals and duos to practise songs and we have a vast sheet music collection to suit all tastes. Our encouragement and understanding has proven that there is room for the smallest and biggest of voices with us. The strength of our singing department is demonstrated by our most recent annual dance shows 5212. Nearly 200 songs were performed completely live and accompanied by a 7 piece live band. With music from the past 60 years ranging from Bill Hayley, Led Zeplin, Abba right thorugh to Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Beyonce and Rihanna.

What do I need for my first lesson?
When you arrive at Makin’ Steps (you can find our contact details here), you will be met by our door staff. They will provide you with a starters letter and you will then be taken into one of our studios for your class. Please wear something comfortable to move in – for example, a t-shirt, leggings, tracksuit or similar. Please bring yourself a non-drink, towel and hair tied back if long.
Makin’ Steps tutors are experienced, fully qualified and CRB registered professionals who are experts in their teaching fields. Our principle teachers have worked alongside top artists such as Kylie Minogue & Robbie Williams on TV shows such as MTV & The Brits Awards and also choreographed for TV shows such as Top Of The Pops and Strictly Come Dancing. This experience and knowledge combined with qualifications from one of the world’s leading dance examinations boards is what sets Makin’ Steps a part from many other local schools. We feel that our pupils should be receiving the highest possible training with experts in each and every class we offer. Like all sport activities dance requires not only knowledge of “steps and combinations”, but also a great understanding of the anatomy, health and safety and student welfare. We strongly believe it takes more than just someone who can dance to be a dance teacher! This is why our team has spent many years training to become qualified teachers, so you can be safe in the knowledge that every student who walks through our doors will receive a professional, structured, safe and ultimately fun class for years to come.
