The Ingenium Academy offers students between the ages of 14 and 18 a unique musical and cultural experience. This includes tuition from world-renowned musicians, performances in top British venues and the opportunity to meet like-minded friends from all over the world within our environment of creative excellence.

Our vocal programme is for young people who love to sing, are keen to develop their choral technique, improve their ensemble singing and explore a diverse range of vocal styles.

Course Outline

The vocal programme runs for 3 weeks, and students can choose to attend 1, 2 or the full 3 weeks.

Ingenium choral students begin every morning with a full school warm up followed by a specialist comprehensive breathing and vocal warm up in preparation for the day.

Vocal students form the Ingenium Academy Choir, and together sing a challenging and exciting repertoire encompassing many genres. We ensure that students gain a deep understanding of these musical styles through the guidance of sectional tutors and voice specialists.

In addition to singing as a choir, vocal students receive individual singing lessons and masterclasses and work together in small close harmony and chamber groups.

Workshops

Every week, our students take part in a wide range of vocal, instrumental and rhythmical workshops led by internationally renowned experts in jazz, chamber, folk and international music. These workshops are designed to broaden each student’s musical experience by exposing them to something new.

Workshops will include:

Musical awareness, performance skills and interpretation
• Ear training and harmonizing
• Beatboxing and vocal percussion
• Jazz singing, improvisation and performance
• Musical theatre
• Music theory, composition and arranging
• Conducting
• Life in the music industry
• Gospel choir
• Vocal technique and health
• African drumming, body percussion and dance

Concerts and Performance Opportunities

During the three week summer school, students perform two public concerts – one in a prestigious venue in central London and our final showcase concert on campus at Winchester College’s concert hall. In addition to these two public performances, students also have weekly performance opportunities at our internal Performance Platform. These evenings provide a friendly, safe and informal environment for students to develop their performance skills, learn skills to help conquer nerves and build confidence.
