Learn a new instrument and improve your singing skills with our music & singing courses in Sydney.

The Sydney Community College Choir is a dynamic group of singers that has recently expanded due to local acclaim. If you want to join a choir in Sydney then this course is for you. If you haven’t sung in a choir before, we recommended you attend the Music Skills Essentials Course first, but this is not a requirement.

Inexperienced students are invited to meet Christopher 30 minutes before the start of the first session so he can get to know you and give you any support you may need as you settle in.

Led by director Christopher Bowen and supported by an accompanist, the choir has featured in two ‘Christmas at the Sydney Town Hall’ concerts, as well as a production of Handel’s ‘Messiah’ in conjunction with the Sydney University Graduate Choir.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this course, you should have:

  • learned to sing choral music with confidence and to contribute positively to the choir
  • gained an understanding of how to sing different musical styles in an expressive and meaningful way

Ideal for

This course is designed for everyone who loves to sing. (However, students with no experience are asked to attend 30 minutes earlier to the very first session.)

Course content

For the ten sessions of the course, we'll spend nearly two hours per week learning great music from the last four centuries, from the madrigals of Dowland and the chorales of Bach to traditional and modern Christmas carols and 20th-century arrangements of national and folk tunes.

Although it would be an advantage to be able to read music or to have participated in a choir before, this is not essential as the emphasis will be on listening. The emphasis of the course will be on performing - we want to create a choir with a dynamic sound and a great repertoire that can get out there and convey the fun of choral singing to the public.
