Ok. The band has the players. Bass, drums, keyboards and guitars are all sorted - now for the vocals!

If you're the type who wants to front the band, adding dynamics and vocal range to your style of singing is essential. We have all the right training to help you succeed as a semi-pro vocalist. With the advent of the X-Factor and other talent shows, most youngsters believe that the big time is around the corner. We can't help you if you decide on that route, (and in most cases it never materialises) but WE believe that with the right training, you will shine!

Singing with a band is a fantastic experience. Adding your own personality to the sound, and learning about working together - even writing together - will give your band the edge!

At Upbeat, you'll learn all this and more! 
We offer private vocal coaching, and introductory sessions to allow you the chance of singing live with the band! 


Never too old for rock and roll.

Whether you're 8 or 108, we support all learners of all ages and abilities.

We aim to provide a safe and comfortable space for adults interested in joining a band and making some noise!

It is NEVER too late to learn.

We believe in all of our students here at Upbeat. If you are unsure or would like more information, call us or send an email. We look forward to hearing from you!
