Welcome to The Singing Room
The Singing Room has been running since 2007 in Walthamstow. We celebrated 10 years on the 2nd of July 2017! Have a look at the gallery for pictures of the event.
We always welcome new members so do explore the website to find out more about us.
Whether you are an experienced singer or do not see yourself as a singer but want to give it a try then get in touch. We are friendly and non competitive.
The Singing Room offers the opportunity to learn vocal skills or brush up and extend your vocal skills.There is no audition process. The main aim is to enjoy singing with others. We do offer performance experience as well if wanted.
It doesn't matter if you do not read music. Everyone learns by ear with the leader teaching parts by singing them. There are resources to help you learn the songs at home with song words and CD's with all the parts on.
We sing in 2, 3 and 4 part harmony depending on the arrangements of the songs.
We sing a wide range of songs including pop, folk, world and jazz so there is something for everyone.
A typical weekly rehearsal will include a relaxation and physical warm up to both de-stress and energise you. There is then a vocal warm up with some technique work to help with voice development and looking after your voice as well as warm up songs. We then practice the songs we are currently learning.
We work hard but have a laugh too. The weekly workshop is a mix of local people with varying ages and backgrounds. The singing brings everyone together in a way that nothing else can.
