New course at music shop covers the basics of singing

A BEGINNERS’ guide to sight singing has been launched by The Duke’s Music, in Buckingham.

Sight Singing for the Terrified, starts on January 15 and is run as a four week course covering rhythm, pitch, score reading and part singing.

Booking is essential as groups are small. The cost is £40 for the four hour long sessions and will be held at The Duke’s Music, in Market Hill.

Shop owner Ruth Holiday, said choir singing increased confidence and community spirit and the town was privileged to have so many good choirs, including the Lenborough Singers, Buckingham Chorale and the local benefice choir. Popular television shows such as Glee have also lead to an increase in interest. The course is designed to enable everyone to have the skills to join a choir.
