Come join Tara at Vocalstarz; a fun, non-competitive and energetic group singing experience for kids. We will cover all singing techniques such as breathing, voice support, tone, pitch, phrasing, pronunciation and also holistic singing approaches that assist with self-confidence and authentic self-expression. Whether you are wanting to learn for the fun, or more serious about your craft, Vocalstarz will guide you accordingly. Group 1 is for 6 to 7-year-old children Group 2 is for 8 to 12-year-old children The class duration is 1 hour. Vocalstarz prides itself on creating a sense of community and fun within its singing class, so Tara always starts the class with a welcome ice breaker bonding game. This allows us to learn all about each other to build trust within the class and towards our fellow singing friends. We work with a piano keyboard to warm up our vocal cords. They are age appropriate, fun and help with singing techniques such as breathing, pitch, tone, power and vocal control. After a warm up, we work on a few fun singing technique games which help with learning your individual voice and learning to sing as a group. You will be taught two songs throughout the duration of the singing course and will be invited to perform them on your last class to family. Please BYO water bottle and a display folder to hold your song lyrics to practice at home.

First Aid Training โ€“ Certified Training

Previously known as ‘Apply First Aid’ or ‘Senior First Aid’ this training course will give you the skills and knowledge required to provide First Aid response, life support, management of the casualty, the incident and other first aiders, in a range of situations, including in the home, workplace or within the community, until the arrival of medical assistance. This is a certified training (Provide First Aid 003) that a lot of workplaces require you to do for employment. Jennifer is a very experienced trainer who makes her training as interactive as she can to help people retain the information, rather than just listening to instructions. We have smaller group sizes to ensure that all your questions are answered and you get that one on one attention that you may require. This is accelerated learning and you will be required to sit an online form of multiple choice questions (approx. 1-2 hours) prior to course commencement. But don’t let that scare you as all the questions can be answered within the text provided. Once enrolled, 7 days are required for cancellation with a current medical certificate* This policy is a requirement by the facilitator. Certificates will be issued approximately 7 days after course completion.
