Coro de Clave Cuban Roots Community Choir

New 9-week course coming up

10th September – 5th November

We are delighted to invite new members to join Coro de Clave Community Choir for a 9-week course beginning in Septemeber. No singing experience is necessary. Not sure what to expect? If you are not happy after the first session we are happy to refund the remainder of the course. Or, you can take advantage of our drop-in option (See below).
Each week we will be looking at two different songs from our repertoire. Those who sign up automatically receive links to audio files with the vocal arrangements and separate vocal parts.
Coro de Clave is a Cuban Roots Community Choir that draws on a Cuban singing tradition that dates back over a hundred years.

Course leaders Vicky Jassey and David Pattman



Each session will be divided into three sections: 
Practical rhythm and voice exercises; that aims to develop an understanding of clave (the asymmetrical timeline that underpins Cuban music) and singing in contra time.

Repertoire; that builds on learning a body of songs from the Cuban rumba tradition.

Harmony; we will work on three and four-part vocal harmonies.

Timing; we will develop an understanding of clave and vocal rumba phrasing.
