Vocals Performance – Stage 1, Foundation 1
At Stage 1 Foundation 1 in Vocals Performance Learners will be able to perform pieces to a backing track that are slightly longer than Initial. They will add to their technical abilities through the addition of wider range, more solid tone and more developed rhythms.
