Explore Your Voice at Cooper Hall, Frome

Each year The Cooper Hall Foundation offers an eclectic range of one-day  workshops for singers of all abilities. Based in the grounds of Selwood Manor, Cooper Hall is a bright, intimate performance space with a wonderful acoustic and beautiful piano.

All our tutors offer a broad depth of experience running choirs and workshops throughout the country and each brings a unique mix and blend of  songs and techniques to enable you to sing new songs as quickly as possible. Other than our “Going Solo” workshop, all songs are taught by ear, so there is no need to read music; making the workshop environment relaxed and accessible.

Treat yourself or someone you know who loves singing to come along and explore the voice through a range of genres. Discounts are available for booking more than one class, so it's a perfect way to banish the winter blues by having a monthly dose of spirit lifting and joyous singing in calm and surroundings.

All workshops days are fully inclusive of all refreshments throughout the day – teas, real coffee and delicious home baked cakes and a hot, home cooked lunch. Think of these as “singing pamper days” where all you have to do is come along and enjoy singing in our creative haven.
