WOAPA's Virtual Choir

Brian & Louise

During this time of great uncertainty we are constantly thinking about our wonderful WOAPA singers and students and looking at ways we can continue to get you all singing at home.
We've always received emails from singers saying how taking part in our groups has helped them, in a variety of ways, so we know first-hand what the benefits of singing are - from the experienced to the absolute beginner.
Stay safe and Have fun!

SONG: "Can't Stop The Music"
Here you will find instruction videos for your individual parts - WITH Louise conducting and the words on the screen.
We hope you will enjoy practising.

Please spend some time listening, learning and singing along to your part - whether that is a 'LOW' a 'MIDDLE' or a 'HIGH'.
There is also a track called 'All PARTS' which demonstrates how the track will sound when all the parts are put together.
Once you have mastered your individual part, try singing along to the 'All parts' video.
All WOAPA students should learn the 'Middles' part

We are going to set a deadline for you to video yourselves singing, and send to us.
Please look out for further emails about this.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO WATCH THE VIDEO OF "HOW TO RECORD YOURSELF"  AND "HOW TO SEND A VIDEO"
