If singing is what you live for and you’d like to make it your career, then studying a Music Performance Diploma in Vocals at HCM Milton Keynes, HCM Ware or HCM Letchworth can help you achieve your goals.
Undertaking a one-year Level 2 Music Performance Diploma in Vocals will help you become a better singer and performer, and will improve your music theory skills too. A two-year Level 3 Music Performance Diploma in Vocals is the equivalent of taking three A-levels and is a different way to approach your sixth form learning. During your two years with us, you’ll become a skillful vocalist and performer who has a good idea of how the music business operates, and will be ready to show the world what you’re made of.
Studying a vocal course is free for UK and EU students aged 18 or under*, and there are also funding options available for those aged 19+. For those students who didn’t perform as well in their GCSEs as they’d hoped, it’s also a good opportunity to retake maths and/or English GCSEs or Functional Skills while studying music at the same time.
When you study vocals at HCM Music College, you’ll develop your vocal skills using a combination of the Estill Voice Training (EVT) programme and traditional vocal techniques. Areas you’ll cover will include:
