30 Minute Lessons

A 30 minute private lesson is most suited to younger students. During these lessons, you will learn a variety of basic vocal warm-ups followed by working on a song. Throughout this process, we incorporate safe singing practices including learning proper vocal technique, breathing and basic theory.

45 Minute Lessons

A 45 minute private lesson has a similar structure to the 30 Minute lesson but gives us more than enough time to cover our vocal warm ups/breathing in depth.  We also spend time working on a song and getting it performance ready.

60 Minute Lessons

A 60 minute private lesson is ideal for senior students, as it gives us enough time to cover a range of areas. During these lessons, you will cover a wide variety of vocal exercises such as scales, arpeggios, register transitions and range extension developing a strong vocal technique focusing on breathing and articulation and performance skills and how to perform to your audience.



Combined Singing/Acting Class

Not a dancer? If you love to sing and act, this class is the perfect fit. This is a perfect combination of the two in a 1-hour class.

Musical Theatre ‘Sing Dance Act’

If you want to sing, dance, and act in the tradition of great Broadway musicals, this class is for you. Students will receive instruction in voice, acting, and dancing to songs and performances inspired by Broadway. Special attention will be paid to performance skills and song interpretation.

Group Singing

Group lessons are a fun way to learn with friends whilst developing vocal technique, confidence and stage presence.  Group lessons focus on learning different genres and building repertoire focusing on harmonising and performance skills.

Group Acting

Group acting classes develop confidence, ensemble skills, improvisation and public speaking skills. With a focus on script work from film/tv and theatre, children begin to understand how to interpret the text and make it come to life.

Performance Group (Invitation Only)

To be invited into the ADVC performance group, students are expected to demonstrate a very high standard of work, commitment and behaviour at all times. Working in these classes is designed to challenge students with the development of harmonies, choreography and stagecraft. The students in our performance group represent the school at community events, festivals, eisteddfods and concerts.

Students are invited to become a member of the Performance Group based on their current level of competency,  age level and commitment. They are also required to do private vocal lessons at ADVC.
