What is the Voice Club?

The Voice Club is the name of the group courses and singing workshops run by Heather Maîr Thomas and her associates.

Many people, particularly in London, have difficulty practicing singing regularly at home - thin walls, flatmates, lack of vocal guidance, or simply a lack of motivation.

In 2006 Heather Maîr started Voice Club in Crouch End, to create a space for people to practice and develop healthy, relaxed and reliable singing technique, in good company.

At Voice club we teach, direct and motivate people to relax and enjoy their voices, so they can join choirs, sing solos, use their voice for the first time or whatever makes them happy.

Voice Club sessions include deep relaxation exercises, breathing, vocal warm-ups and exercises to support development of the voice, increasing range and improving vocal tone.

We also learn song-preparation skills to help apply technique to whatever repertoire we sing in or beyond the sessions.

Heather's teaching style is light hearted, humourous and encouraging -(she wants everyone to have a good time!)
