(Scroll down for map).

A special opportunity to join a unique Singing Workshop

This workshop will be focused on breathing technique, rounding sound, vocal health and how to ‘belt’. The day will be led by two professional singing teachers and singers in their own right, and will be split into two halves, the first part being taught from the classical tradition and the second from the Estill Model of voice training.

This workshop was organised by Eclipse Choir, which was set up by Jim Hawkins in April 2015. There are 20 spaces available to non-choir members. It is going to be a very informative and useful training day and beneficial to all singers who are looking to improve singing technique and understand more about how our voices work.


Adults £30 for the day

My highlights were the great atmosphere throughout the day… Good to use a score and be taught more about music theory… The band… Jim’s sense of humour and energy. The free pencil – obviously!” Testimonial from The Beatles Workshop in 2014

Eclipse Choir started in April 2015 when Jim put into motion his dream of setting up his own choir which would rehearse and perform a mix of modern and more classical songs in SATB (or for those not familiar with choral lingo–soprano, alto, tenor, bass).

Here we are nearly 10 weeks later and wholeheartedly getting ready to perform our debut gig.

The choirs will be singing songs from Bob Chilcott, Toto and Queen to the Kings Singers.

Eclipse is made up of two choirs groups that rehearse separately on Monday and Thursday nights, plus some small ensemble groups performing as well as one or two soloists. Please visit our website to find out more!
