For Singers

Colchester Voice Academy offer individual singing lessons, group classes and courses for singers of all styles.   We work with  people who would like to learn to improve their understanding of how to get the very best from their voices.  Some will be training to go into professional theatre or the music industry, others will be here for well being, confidence building and to just have fun!  We also work with professional voice users in the theatre, tv, film and music industries.

Individual lessons can be booked on a casual or ongoing basis.  Due to ongoing bookings, it is usual to need to plan ahead. 

Need help preparing your audition rep? Please don't leave this until a couple of weeks before your audition! Plan your audition portfolio well ahead of time to enable your performance to truly shine!

You can learn all about our various classes by navigating around our website.  Once you find the right product for you or your child, you can book a lesson, enrol in a class or course with a few simple clicks.

What does your Membership include?

Once you join Colchester Voice Academy by booking some individual voice  lessons or enrolling in one of our group classes, you will be able to access lots of free content!  Monday to Friday (10 weeks per term) we have a variety of 20 minute warm up classes that you can join and participate in from home.  

We will also grant you access to our online community forum where students (age 13+) can share insights, stories, ideas, and support each other as you work towards achieving your personal vocal goals.  

We have separate community forums for our Teen members, Adults only and Triple 10 Club Members. All content is monitored daily to ensure your questions are answered and you receive the support you need.

Our showcases, which usually occur twice a year, in July and December, have been a great platform to demonstrate student skill level progression, as well as give each singer valuable stage practice time, in front of an appreciative audience of friends and relatives.  

The Vocal Freedom Podcast, hosted by our Principal and Founder, Leigh Martyn Thomas, launching on Friday 15th May will also include some exclusive offers for our community members.
