About the program

The 3-day Boys Vocal Program is a non-audition vocal program led by tutor Stuart Davis and Arlo Sim at Trackdown Studios at the Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park, in Term 2 Week 6. During the first 2 days of the workshop, students and teachers work on vocal warm-ups, vocal techniques, ensemble singing, filming a film clip and developing an exciting harmonised repertoire.

On the third day, students record the track with sound engineers at Trackdown Studios, where they experience the recording, engineering and mixing process. Following the program, the completed music clip and recording are available to all schools via the Arts Unit website.
