Promenade Youth Choir singing Mozart's Requiem Mass

To help young singers to continue learning during isolation in the community I shall be placing free resources onto the website. Please feel free to share links to these whether or not you are members of the Promenade Choirs, or indeel local! To do this properly it will take a bit of time, so please keep an eye on this page for further details.

I will be putting up warm-up videos and songs to learn for two agegroups - in line with my choirs, so 7-11 and 11+.

I wish you all well.

The extercises are also available as a PDF

Learn Ah! poor bird, which is a lovely round, and join Camilla singing it as a round. If you already know the song go to the end of the video!

Learn My bonnie lies over the Ocean, then have fun playing games with the song. If you already know it go to half way through the video!

Use these three videos to learn a medley of songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. This medley was created for a performance by the Promenade Youth and Junior Choirs together.

  • Listen to the video that relates to your part and get used to singing along to it. All the tracks are the same speed, but highlight a different voice part. You may want to practise your part against the other video too – to sing a duet!
  • Get used to singing properly – stand up, sing out load and with proper support.
  • If you want to warm up first and want some help doing so, you can use the warmups on the Promenade website
  • Make sure you are rigorously in time with the recording. I can’t conduct you!
  • When you are confident record your part. To do this, listen to the recording using headphones and record your part on a device such as a mobile phone. I only want to hear your voice – not the track! Try and find a moment when there isn’t any other background noise either.
  • Record everything – even the silences, because that gives the correct space between sections, so I can combine the tracks effectively.
  • You will probably think your recording sounds strange without the accompaniment. Don’t worry. I need all the tracks to combine them. The more, the better they sound together.
  • You may make several recordings – I can then combine all of them to make the choir sound fuller and more even.
  • Email me your recordings.
