Soul Song Cairns rehearses pretty much every Tuesday although we do take the odd week off during school holidays so please check the calendar to make sure there's a rehearsal on before you come along.
New members are welcome at any time and your first rehearsal is free so you can check us out without obligation. You don't have to let us know you're coming but you can give Jaq a call first on 0412 255 587 if it will help with the first rehearsal nerves!
As Jaq, the founder, now lives in Brisbane, Soul Song Cairns is run from week to week by a team of admin volunteers and a talented team of section leaders, who we refer to as the Musical Magicians (or Mugicians for short!). These Mugicians run rehearsals as a collaborative with each section leader teaching their sections as part of the whole group.
Then roughly once a month, Jaq flies up and gate crashes rehearsal just so they don't forget her!
We start singing at 6.30pm but check in opens from 6.10pm so you're welcome to come in a bit early. Rehearsals go through until 8.30pm.
Rehearsals are obviously primarily about working on repertoire and building vocal technique but we try to mix up rehearsals each week to keep them interesting.
Those who come the most often get the most out of Soul Song but there is no expectation for people to come every single week and we have lots of resources available for those who miss a week or a few to help them catch up if they want to. You'll get more information on this when you join.
We will give you a folder and all the lyrics you need once you've signed up. Then each week you come, you just need to bring some water, a highlighter, pen or pencil, your folder and reading glasses if you're of that kind of age!
Your first rehearsal is free so you can come along and check us out without obligation!
Fees can be paid on a weekly basis on arrival at rehearsal (cash or card), so you only pay for what you use. Or can be paid as a single term payment for a discount equivalent to 2-3 rehearsals depending on the term.
|Weekly payments||$20 per rehearsal||$13 per rehearsal|
|Upfront Term payment||$187 (equal to $16.50 per rehearsal)||$121 (equal to $10.50 per rehearsal)|
In addition, upon sign up, there is a one off admin payment of $25 which includes your lyric book, USB with all resources and a car sticker.
You will select your preferred fee payment upon sign up.
