What is Zoomtunes? 

If your child loves singing, this new and exciting free online class is for them! The 30 minute session will start with some vocal warm ups and games to get the voice going and help them master good techniques. Words will be onscreen and with the mics on mute, your child can sing out with confidence! 

They will learn a whole range of songs from folk, musical theatre and pop.
