Learn to Sing
Learning to sing is a discipline that is accessible to everyone. At WollCon, we offer people of all ages a variety of ways to extend their creative expression, by exercising their love of music through the joy of singing.
Our vocal department is made up of teachers with a high level of industry experience in various styles: Music Theatre, Jazz, Classical, Contemporary, R&B. We focus on developing a solid technical foundation to allow freedom of expression and the development of the student’s unique voice. Our teaching method incorporates breath management, vocal function, support structures, tonal colour, range, flexibility, power and vocal ease. Developing Aural skills with artistic interpretation, character development in song, connections between emotion and vocal colour. Performance opportunities include guidance through AMEB exams, eisteddfods, regular student performances, Open Days and local events. Students of all levels and ages are welcome.

Singing FUNdamentals is a small group class for young singers (years 1-5) that explores the workings of the amazing instrument that is the human voice in an engaging and age appropriate way.
Lessons include singing and non-singing games and repertoire, plus exercises exploring the different components of our unique instrument.
Led by Trish Delaney-Brown (certified Estill Master Trainer), classes utilise ’The Estill Adventure: Figures for Beginners’ workbook – purchase of which is a requirement.
Our Youth Choirs cover everything from contemporary to classical ensemble singing. Participants learn to sing in harmony, whatever the genre and to take part in performances throughout the year. Covid has resulted in a huge reduction in singing activity so we’d encourage all young singers to rekindle their love of singing by joining one of our Youth Choirs at WollCon.
Individual Vocal Lessons
Lessons are available in blocks of 15, 30, 45 and 60 minutes. All times are negotiable; 30 minutes per week is the most popular length.
Jazz Vocal Combo
AKA ‘The Hummingbirds’
|1 hour once a week|
|$283.00 per 9 week term|
This is WollCon’s premier vocal ensemble performing 3 & 4 part arrangements heavily weighted towards the jazz genre. Members must be able to strongly hold a harmony line on their own, as arrangements often feature a single voice on one part.
Inspired by groups such as The Andrew’s Sisters; The Chordettes; The Puppinni Sisters; Lambert Hendricks and Singers Unlimited, the Hummingbirds is a wonderful opportunity for members to fine tune their blending and sight singing skills; develop a strong swing and jazz sensibility; play with improvisation; develop vocal consistency and confidence, and explore performance aspects such as movement, patter, set programming and vocal balance in amplified settings.
This is an auditioned group.
