Voicebeat meets on Monday evenings from 7–9pm (please arrive a few minutes before, in order to start singing at 7pm). As of 2016 we meet at the Scottish Dance Teachers' Alliance in Kelvinbridge at 101 Park Rd, Glasgow G4 9JE, not far from Kelvinbridge underground station, between Eldon St and Woodlands Rd.
The current term runs from 6 January to 30 March 2020. You can join at any time.
There's no audition or entry requirement to join Voicebeat. You don't need to read music, as we learn by ear. Whatever your background and experience, you are very welcome to come along to any rehearsal to enjoy the fun of singing with other people. You don't have to join at the start of term, you can come along at any time. After the rehearsal, we go to the pub to rehydrate, discuss plans and socialise, so please join us if you can.
We don't normally observe bank holidays. The summer term ends in June. We have optional summer rehearsals during (usually) August for those who just can't go without their singing fix, before starting the new singing year in September. Most years we organise a residential singing weekend somewhere outside the city (2019: New Lanark; 2020: Arran).
To join Voicebeat costs just £2 per term. Your first rehearsal is free; thereafter, a contribution of £5 per rehearsal towards costs (room hire, refreshments, tuition etc) is requested from those who can afford it. Refugees and asylum-seekers pay nothing. It helps us if you pay termly in advance, and you get a discounted rate.
Finally... Voicebeat is not a drop-in session. We really appreciate a dedicated attitude, reliable attendance and punctual arrival. Obviously we know people have other things in life that can get in the way, but if you do decide it's for you, please commit and give it your very best. You will get out of it what you put in.
