Vocal Performance


“There’s a melody in everything. And once you find the melody, then you connect immediately with the heart. Because sometimes English or Spanish, Swahili or any language gets in the way. But nothing penetrates the heart faster than the melody” Carlos Santana

We believe every student has a different voice and different capabilities; we want each student to reach their full vocal potential via this programme. Vocal Performance classes are fun and informative, we create a space where the singer can feel comfortable so we can impart the skills needed to grow.

The programme follows the Trinity Rock and Pop Syllabus which means students benchmark their development to international standards. The structure of the class includes vocal technique (pitch, scales, ear training, resonance) as well as a repertoire study. Students not only sing the song but understand how the song is sung and how songs can be shaped to suit individual voice and style. Also, as we are the only LAMDA Musical Theatre training studio in KZN, we can tailor classes to develop a students’ Musical Theatre prowess and have the option of entering an RQF certified LAMDA Musical Theatre examination.

Vocal Performance training is available for students from the age of 9 to adult. Entry to our Vocal Performance Programme is via a 30-minute assessment class, during which time we assess current vocal skills so we can place you at the correct training level.

During each class, we work on building vocal confidence, vocal technique and exploring different genres of music.  Vocal Performance students are not required to enter examinations, but should they want to do we will ensure they are examination ready via these classes. Students must have completed two (2) terms’ training with Durban Actors Studio in order to be eligible for examination entry.
