Year 14 – Seaford’s Post A Level Singing Course

Seaford offers a further year of part time study for any students wishing to opt to study Voice in further education.

This programme supports all aspects of training including aural skills, sight reading, harmony, voice lessons, languages, choirs, concerts, diplomas, movement class, and keyboard skills with a dedicated team of specialists. This will enable students to be guided through auditions to a conservatoire or university and focus their attention on developing their skills to a high level pre application. Recently we have nurtured students who were awarded scholarships to the Royal College of Music and the Birmingham Conservatoire.

Ultimately I want to go to the Royal College of Music or another conservatoire.

First I’m going to do Year 14 here. Not only will it improve my voice, but it will improve me as a performer, as a person. I’ll get a glimpse of the real world before I’m back in the system. I’ll get the chance to keep performing here - in the choir and in musicals. It will expose me to opportunities externally as I’ll be like a member of staff.

After a conservatoire I’d like to train with an opera company. Hopefully the English National Opera. I’d start with small roles. My dream is to then one day move to the Met Opera. Whatever role there is – the chorus or the main role would be equally good."
