Are you looking for some inspiration to learn new songs and have the experience of singing them in front of other people without leaving home? Then Song Club is for you!
Here’s how it works:
- You learn a song at home. We put a heap of songs in a dropbox with EVERYTHING you need to learn them: reference tracks of a great performance of the song, practice tracks and some notes on how to attack it.
- Monday nights at 7pm we sing for each other on zoom.
- You’ll be amazed at how a supportive environment, the right learning materials and a deadline will supercharge your singing!
Here’s the Spotify playlist with all the songs for Summer 2023
The songs are across a range of styles and difficulties. Songs that are perfect for those of you trying out your first solo right through to pro-level songs for those of you who’d like to challenge yourselves. There will be a mix of songs you know and songs that are new to you. And you definitely don’t have to sing all of them. Just pick one or two that speak to you and learn them.
Then every Monday evening at 7pm we have a zoom get together with the incredible Chelsea Plumley at the helm where everyone can try out their songs in front of the group. Chelsea is just home from starring in the Australian tour of Mary Poppins – you can read all about her work here.
At these sessions Chelsea will offer some helpful ideas. But it’s definitely not a singing lesson – it’s more an opportunity to share your singing and apply your own knowledge and skills to develop your performance. And it’s a super supportive environment so you’ll leave feeling good about yourself!
At the end of the season we get together in real life to sing a song for each other at The Butterfly Club. There is no pressure to perform – as with all things at Glee Club our motto is “you do you”.

“I feel a liberation and confidence in zoom compared with live performance. Thanks for your kind words and encouragement.”
“I’m so much better at being organised and learning things if I’m accountable to someone.”
“I have loved learning new songs each week and have learned so much listening to the others sing too”.
