Welcome to Voices in Flight
Find confidence in your unique voice through group singing lessons
Voices in Flight is for people who feel stuck in their singing because the voice in their head tells them they ‘can’t’ because they aren’t ‘good enough’.
Voices in Flight will take you by the hand and help you find your free, brave, confident and unique voice. We’ll drown out those voices of doubt and criticism, and show you what you’re really capable of.
10 weeks of singing fun and freedom
focus your practice
work on songs you love
grow as a singer
….all while having a tonne of fun with some great people.
Is this for you? Let me tell you more…
What is Voices in Flight?
In a safe and encouraging environment where we can try new things together, Georgia will gently push you outside your comfort zone while providing the safety net in case you fall. The rest of the group is there to support and encourage you too – and you’ll enjoy learning alongside them and celebrating their successes, being inspired to take risks as you see others do so, and helping them learn from their own ‘fails’.
3 online group classes
6 guided worksheets
1 online learning platform
Take away the pressure, throw in lots of fun
When we love to sing, we can get weighed down by our need to constantly improve, be better, sing closer to perfection. We have an infinite possibility to learn, but we put so much pressure on ourselves that we get stuck.
In Voices in Flight we take away the pressure to be perfect and embrace imperfection. In doing so, we can get to know our voices better, experience the freedom to explore them, and build our confidence: we are indeed singers with beautiful unique voices! We are allowed to sing for joy first, and worry about the perfection second.
And the cool thing? When we stop trying so hard to improve, we go in leaps in bounds!
A group class that sees you as you are
I’d always wanted to teach a group singing class, because I know how powerful it is to be a part of a community and learn from our peers. But I also wanted to keep the personal, individualised aspect of my teaching that I believe is so essential to singing, where every voice is as different as every person.
It’s how I came up with this format, a mix of live group classes focusing on solo performance, with some fun group singing on the side, as a chance to sing without an agenda. Guided practice, because I know that one of the biggest challenges for any singer is when they are away from the teacher. And lots of self reflection through worksheets and activities, because I believe that getting to know yourself and getting to know your voice are the keys to singing freely and with confidence.
I hope you’ll join us!
In the words of Voices in Flight alumni...
A monthly group class...
In the monthly 1h45 minute class:
– Warming up together with intention and learning about the different parts of a warm up. This section will be recorded and added to the Padlet.
You’ll be given a song to learn in advance of the live class, and we’ll use it to sing together in creative and silly ways. For the second and third classes, you’ll prepare this song with your ‘Connect’ group (more about this below).
Each participant will sing a song they have prepared, and will receive feedback and guidance on what to work on from Georgia, with support and encouragement from the rest of the group.
You can sing whatever you like. You can sing a cappella (by yourself) or with a backing track, or accompanying yourself if that’s your thing.
...and all the juicy extras
Between the classes:
Through the online learning platform, Padlet, you will be able to access all the resources and challenges from Voices in Flight, as well as connect with the rest of the group.
As well as the recorded warm ups/technique sections from the group classes, you’ll also be able to see resources related to things that have come up in class, extra practice resources, and anything you ask me for, really! (Within reason!)
Every week you’ll be given guidance on where to focus your practice. Some weeks this will be through a worksheet on a particular topic, which you can complete, keep forever, and use to learn or revisit essential singing skills related to finding your unique voice.
*NEW* I know everyone learns differently, so some weeks I will accompany your work with an audio recording, guiding you through a worksheet or giving you a pep talk.

You are welcome here
Voices in Flight welcomes diversity in every sense of the word, and welcomes you as you are. (I have some words on diversity and inclusion in the studio if you’d like to read more here).
YOUR voice. YOUR goals. Songs YOU love to sing.
You are welcome here whatever your experience level is, wherever you are on your singing journey, however many lessons you have or have not had, and whatever your goals.
The nuts and bolts
How does the online class work?
Important - Make sure you're available for the live classes
Voices in Flight focuses around the live group classes, so it is essential that you make it to all of them. Be sure you check theses times and dates against your own time zone!
Meet and Greet: Tuesday 12 October, 7:15 pm – 7:45 pm CEST (UTC+2)
Live Class #1: Tuesday 19 October, 7:15 pm – 9 pm CEST (UTC+2)
Live Class #2: Tuesday 16 November, 7:15 pm – 9 pm CET (UTC+1)
Live Class #3: Tuesday 14 December, 7:15 pm – 9 pm CET (UTC+1)
You can check against your own timezone here: worldtimebuddy.com
I have a zero cancellation or refund policy for Voices in Flight. This is because the class is so successful when everyone is there for the whole thing, and the experience of everyone is impacted by each other’s presence. The upside of this is an amazing group experience!
So, if you aren’t 100% sure that you can make it to all the live classes, then perhaps this isn’t the right course for you.
We’ve been doing singing classes through Zoom for over a year now, and while it’s different from in-person lessons, it works really well!
You’ll be given instructions on how to optimise Zoom for singing before the first class.
What You'll Need...
- A space at home where you will be undisturbed, where you can stand and sit.
- A device for the zoom call
- A second device to play any backing tracks you might need
What if I get sick?
The advantage of an online class is that you can come even if you’re sick. If you don’t feel up to singing, you can still join (in your pjs without the camera on if you like!) and learn from others, take notes, and do the exercises and activities when you’re feeling better.
Everyone will help you catch up in the online platform, and you can even post a video of the song you wanted to work on for feedback.
What does it cost?
The course is 306€, paid in 3 instalments of 102€:
Payment #1 – due at registration, through booking
Payment #2 – invoiced November 5th
Payment #3 – invoiced December 3rd
I have a payment policy of 7 days to pay invoices. Invoices can be paid by bank transfer or credit/debit card via Stripe.
If you register for the course and miss any classes, no refunds or cancellations will be possible. Please book carefully and make sure of your availability to commit to the whole 10 weeks.
How much time do I need to commit?
The meet and greet call is 30 mins.
The live classes are 1hr45
How much time you put in beyond that is up to you, but I do recommend you make sure you’ll have time to practice and complete the worksheets so you get the most out of the course.
You’ll also need to be able to be available to connect with your ‘Connect’ group in Weeks 4 & 8 at the very least, but hopefully you’ll want to be in touch with each other more than that!
As an idea, you’ll spend anywhere from 30 mins to a several hours a week on your singing through the worksheets and guided practice activities. Most students put in 1-2 hours/week of individual practice.
I want to be sure that this is the right fit for you, so if you've got any questions at all, please get in touch:
