Sing From Your Sofa
Virtual Choirs are a global phenomenon. By creating a user-generated, digital choir, we bring together singers from across the world, sharing their love of music from the comfort of their sofas!
With Sing From Your Sofa we give you all the resources you need to learn great tunes. Then you can record and upload your video from any location all over the world. Each one of the videos are synchronised and combined into one performance to create virtual choir performances, each of which continue to grow as more recordings are added. To access all this you need to subscribe, but you’re free to cancel at any time.
Each month you’ll get a brand new Sofa Song, packed with stuff to get you singing:
- ü Demo track & backing track
- ü Vocal tracks for voice parts
- ü Sheet music
- ü Song lyrics
- ü Rehearsal notes
- ü Weekly hints and tips to help you get the most out of the experience
Upload yourself singing the song and become part of a large, online choral community.
