Welcome To Choirmaster!
"Choirmaster has changed my life"

Consider Yourself... One Of Us!

Founded by theatre director and producer Adam Allinson, Choirmaster is a vibrant and exciting no fuss choir inspiring voices across South Shields and beyond! A brand new and exciting musical experience, there is no complicated sheet music and no auditions! 

Is it for me?

  • Most importantly Choirmaster is open to absolutely anyone, with the motto that ‘everyone can sing, it is everyone else’s hearing that is defective!’ Choirmaster is run entirely by the singers. There is no committee and you choose the music you sing. Whilst there is absolutely no pressure to perform, we will of course encourage performance opportunities throughout the year!

What will I achieve?

  • By being involved with Choirmaster you will be taken to perform at various events across South Tyneside throughout the year. You are also encouraged to source out performance opportunities in the local area.
  • Whilst developing your voice and learning to sing you will experience a number of health benefits.
  • We will also give you the chance to travel nationally and internationally on tours, Choirmaster workshop breaks, and social trips.
  • At the end of each year, the Choirmaster will produce a CD featuring you and your fellow singers.
  • You will find that your life will change! 

What are the benefits?

  • You will be inspired and will leave each session with a huge buzz!
  • With a thriving social life, singers are encouraged to socialise outside of rehearsals, as well as Choirmaster holding a number of social events throughout the year with singers meeting new friends for life at each rehearsal. Singing also has a number of major benefits including physical wellbeing, psychological and emotional wellbeing as well as numerous social benefits for all ages.

How much does it cost?

  • In order to ensure we keep the choir open to as many people as possible we are keeping the pricing simple. The first time you come, you can enjoy a free ‘taster’ session. 
  • We operate on a pay as you go basis. This way, people who can’t afford costly termly memberships to other organisations can still come and enjoy Choirmaster.
  • It is simply £3.00 for the Tuesday morning session and £5.00 for the Monday evening session. 

Sounds great! How do I join?

  • It is simple! Unlike many groups and choirs, we never stop, even for school holidays!
  • Just simply turn up to one of the sessions below and you will be made to feel very welcome! 
  • Choirmaster is a very friendly group of people of all ages, backgrounds, talents and styles! You will feel at home very quickly!
  • The only thing we ask is that you are aged 16+

What Will I Be Doing?

A Typical Session Might Include...


The Warm Up

A fun energetic warm that will also give you a technical knowledge of singing and performance skills.

The Rehearsal

Throughout the rehearsal you could be singing anything! The one guarantee we make is that you will have heaps of fun and have a ball at the same time!


No Choirmaster rehearsal is complete without a quick tea break!

Q&A Session

You are always given the chance to ask any questions in relation to the rehearsal or to discuss any ideas you might have as well as putting forward any suggestions!
