As part of your Vocal tuition at Darwen School of Music, you will learn correct and safe breathing technique that will help you explore your voice’s full potential.  Hit those higher notes with ease, increase your vocal range and work towards an effortless approach to singing your favourite songs.


Whether you are an experienced singer or a complete beginner, we aim to help you build self-confidence so that you can make the most of your newly learnt techniques.  You will have opportunities to get behind the microphone both in the studio and at our regular showcase events at Darwen Library Theatre, with full encouragement and support every step of the way.


When it comes to the music itself, students are invited to choose the songs that they wish to sing in their lessons and the tutor will accompany on piano or acoustic guitar.  There is also help on hand for anyone wishing to have a go at songwriting and past students have written and recorded tracks that have been released on iTunes.
