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.
We started back on 10 January 2022, both in the room and on Zoom. The term runs to 31 March. Email us for details of how to participate (numbers in the room are limited, so you must book, if you turn up unexpectedly we will probably not have space for you). If you've been unable to get a place this term, do stay in touch so we can welcome you in when it's possible to increase the numbers at rehearsals. And sorry it has to be this way, for now :(
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, and we start the new singing year in September.
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, etc etc.
