Reclaim Your Voice

A course for people who think they can’t sing, people labelled tone deaf and very shy singers. A year’s worth of singing lessons in one weekend.

This course is for all those people who think they can’t sing or have been labelled ‘tone deaf’, from those who ‘mime’ in the back row, to those who belt it out while their friends and family cringe. For all those people who feel very shy about singing, or just want to learn to sing better.

Friday 13 September 7.30pm – 9.30pm
& Sat/Sun 14/15 September
10.00am – 4.00pm

C.M.C.C., 455 Hagley Ave.

Reclaim Your Voice for people who think they can't sing - singing lessons in Christchurch for beginners


Nikki has been pioneering this work for many years and seeks to explode the myth of the ‘non-singer’. Singing is a skill that develops naturally in children. Most people who have trouble singing in tune have had this process interrupted in some way.

By learning a range of techniques, and through the creation of a supportive, non-threatening environment, we will work to gently reshape the image we have of ourselves as ‘non-singers’ and claim the right to enjoy using our voices.
