Some students rehearsing for our Christmas performance
Paula Odell runs specific vocal classes for children
and young people on a Thursday evening in New Marske. These classes are split into age/ability groups not only to ensure students progress and but also to ensure that the teaching style and song material is age appropriate.
Singing and Musical Theatre Exams
Paula's young singers are taught correct breathing techniques, vocal technique and performance skills and are encouraged to enter graded singing exams annually. Some of Paula's students, who have been under her guidance for a number of years, have gained their grade 8 before they have left secondary school. Also Paula's students have received high achievement awards for excellent exam results.

Performing in Bill Kenwright’s production of Joseph and His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat
The children who attend Paula’s young vocal classes also sing as part of a youth choir and in June 2019 they performed as the 'Joseph Choir' for Bill Kenwright's production of Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at The Darlington Hippodrome Theatre. Training starts again this September as we will be forming the Joseph Choir again when the touring production comes to the Billingham Forum Theatre in November.
Sessions start again on Thursday 5th September (after the summer break)
Tuesday 12th November to Saturday 16th November our students will be performing at The Billingham Forum Theatre as part of the ’Joseph Choir’.
