Do I need to be able to read music?

You do not need to be able to read sheet music to be able to join the choir. We do give every member sheet music and lyrics for each song and we teach from these resources but it is not essential to read sheet music. Throughout your time with us though you will slowly learn to read music within the rehearsals, but the focus of the sessions is having fun and sounding great!
